Yoga Background I have a true passion for living and loving life to the fullest!!~ I am a true enthusiast for many different forms of physical play such as dancing, biking, hiking, skiing, gardening, volleyball and freestyle frisbee and a currently hula hooping~

In my work since 1985 I have áflowed in the Fitness world áand taught everything that has come our way with mind, body fitness as well as Yoga. I have ábeen blessed to help build the bridge from Fitness to Yoga in the health industry! áI teach different types of classes in Yoga, Stability Ball, Therapeutics, Trance Yoga Flow, Yoga/massage, áFusion, Yoga for kiddos, athletes, elders and special needs people+. á Iááalso áworkáextensively with private clients where I can cater to their specific needs and abilities.
I love working w/ my students to help them discover their own core strength. To me "core" has 2 components: the HEART and the Pelvis. From these 2 vital, powerful, FULL of LIFE places, we move. The word core means heart such as corazon in Spanish, Italian cuore and French coeur. How sweet is that!
     

My deep conviction and love for yoga as well as my 34-year meditation practice has served me in such a blessed way. In1990 I truly dedicated myself to Yoga and the path keeps opening my practice, body, mind and spirit to my inner divinity. Six weeks after my daughter Eris was born I met John Friend at a weekend workshop at Richard Freeman's studio. I fully embrace with great enthusiasm Anusara Yoga since it jives beautifully with my life including. Seeing the beauty (Sri in Sanskrit) of Yoga is my path of life and it involves every second of my being ALIVE! With so much gratitude I thank John, Gurumayi, Richard and all other teachers as well as my students who have taught me many pearls of wisdom. I love the Yoga and play with all other sorts of movement mediums that opens the heart from the inside out!

I am fully dedicated with great enthusiasm to Anusara Yoga since it jives so beautifully with every facet of my life including the fitness I teach. I continue to study with John, visit Richard's studio, and others wherever I am in the world to continue to welcome ALL Yoga into my journey of discovering myself. The beauty of Yoga is it is my path of life and it involves every second of my being ALIVE! With so much gratitude I thank John, Gurumayi, Richard and all other teachers including my students who have taught me many pearls of wisdom.
