Why I Practice

Yoga enables me to build the strength and focus I need to stay true to who I am in all aspects of life. It provides me with the ability to stay balanced, no matter how hectic the day. And, of course, there is the yoga community, which brings people of varied perspectives, backgrounds, and beliefs together in such a positive way.

Why I Teach

Bearing witness to how the process of yoga unfolds in each student’s practice is such a blessing. To help people transcend their perceived limitations, observe as they become empowered, share in their joy and support them in their difficulties is the most fulfilling work I know.
