I started practicing yoga in 1995.  


I practise yoga to smooth out my mind so I can more easily tap into the wisdom of my body. 


It is simply an incredible healing technology to balance my the bodymind and spirit and it will be with me for the rest of my life.  It is truly a tool to connect to my Higher Self, to acknowledge and transform the difficulties that all humans encounter such as fear, anger, worry, grief.  And, to uncover a deep trust in the friendliness and abundance of the Universe that I know is there, but often gets obscured.


My yoga practice has taken different forms over the years depending on my needs which shift and change. I started practicing Iyengar based Hatha Yoga for 4-5 years, then practised 8 years of Pattabi Jois's Ashtanga Yoga.  I started to focus on Yin Yoga for many years then I moved to explore 3-4 years of Restorative Yoga.  Now, over the last many years, I practise a grounded Hatha practise utilizing props to find skillful, patient alignment.  My practise is based on physical and energetic or pranic alignment.
