Birth and death; nature; my two young boys; music; the duality of life
Why I Practice
I practice to return again and again to the present moment -- to my body and my breath and ultimately to my true self.
Why I Teach
As a lifelong runner, I was simply looking to add something complementary to my fitness routine. Within two years, my mother lost her battle with ovarian cancer leading me to realize that yoga had come to be so much more than a physical practice; it helped carry me through the most difficult time of my life. I teach to help my students find a sense of peace and balance amidst their stressful lives and to discover the beauty and uniqueness that lies within, and all around, them.
