I bring a unique approach to my classes with an emphasis on enjoying and creating a peaceful experience. In teaching, I incorporate my interest in restorative yoga with breath and gentle, flowing postures that increase vitality, deep relaxation and self-awareness. I encourage my students to adapt an attitude of self-acceptance while encouraging them each to listen to the needs of their own particular body. I am a certified ViniYoga instructor and certified in Restorative Flow Yoga after studying with Judith Lasater and Donna Belk. I am a member of the IAYT (International Association of Yoga Therapists) and a Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance. I originally came to yoga with a chronic back injury and discovered its profound healing benefits. After becoming frustrated not finding yoga in the community, she decided to open Healthy-Human Yoga in April of 2003; now operating successfully as LIFESTRETCH YOGA.
