Namaste! I have been teaching classical yoga for over 20 years, and for the last 10 years, in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Today I primarily provide private adaptive yoga for people with special needs and movement disorders. But with my extensive experience I also teach numerous classes in both traditional yoga and adapted yoga for special populations.
For over 7 years, I have led weekly classes for people with Parkinson's Disease and am now contracted by PAR (Parkinson's Association of the Rockies). I am also lead instructor of Adaptive Yoga through the City of Fort Collins ARO Dept. (see Adaptive Yoga for MS).
Over the past 2 years I have been contracted by the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado (BIAC) and hold sessions throughout the year for people with traumatic brain injuries.
A Colorado native, I earned my BS degree in Kinesiology at CU Boulder in 1992. I fell in love with yoga in my mid twenties and became certified to teach at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health (see Kripalu page) in 1998-1999. In 2000 I lived at the Himalayan Institute (http://www.himalayaninstitute.org/), where I deepened my Raja yoga practice and studied the science of Ayurveda.
I have now successfully completed my 300 hour Advanced Teacher Training credentials through the Shambhava Yoga School.
Throughout my 25 year journey on the yogic path, I have studied with many great teachers from a variety of traditions, evolving my personal practice as well as my teaching skills.
A naturally intuitive instructor, I love to teach fun, holistically inspired classes ranging from gently therapeutic to advanced levels of practice.
