I am currently living in Taipei, Taiwan, but will be returning to NC periodically until my permanent move back in
the summer of 2016.
My mission is to be a true reflection of all that Yoga is: vibrant, purposeful, meaningful, conscious, and joyful. By creating a supportive and non-competitive atmosphere in which Yoga practitioners can learn and grow, my goal is to encourage greater health and promote peaceful minds throughout our community.
I recognize that each individual is unique and approaches life in a different way and believe Yoga should challenge and enrich us, while complementing our experience of life. I honor and share the respect and knowledge that comes from the various lineages of Yoga making them accessible and meaningful to every student. My classes are fun, personable, educational and suited to the individual students' needs. We are one. ~OM~
