I started practicing yoga almost 20 years ago. Several years back, I realized that yoga can help with personal growth and healing, beyond just the benefits of the physical practice. The physical practice helps keep me fit as I enter my middle years. But it’s the combination of physical and spiritual fitness that I want to share with others through my instruction. I enjoy teaching beginners, especially those who come to yoga later in life like I did, and those who want to deepen their practice no matter what their ability.
For over 20 years I worked in high rises in Chicago. I was an attorney in Chicago since 1992, where I also taught law school. After spending a year on sabbatical in the mountains of Idaho, I came to Asheville in 2014 with a renewed energy for sharing my practice. Now I am bringing that energy and experience to teaching yoga. I took my 200 hour teacher training at Yogaview – Chicago.
