I have been guiding people into the practice of yoga since 1997. I love teaching beginners and Ashtanga. In early 2010 I completed the Yoga Alliance 500-hour training with Yoga on High in Columbus. The Ashtanga practice is my home practice. I love the clarity it brings to my life. My practice is the only sure thing; everything else is out of my control. My classes will build strength where you are weak and flexibility where you are tight. I value focusing on the integrity of each posture and my hands-on adjustments help you feel each posture more fully. My passion is watching my students expand their personal vision. I see their surprise in the ability to master a posture step by step. First we must believe in ourselves even through the (seemingly) impossible, then all will fall into place. We can only begin where we are and where we are is just fine for beginning.

In the summer I practice and teach outside. My Thursday 6AM class moves to a local deck on the beach. I hold a bi-monthly kayak class with Kayak 41 North. We paddle to practice yoga on a hill overlooking Lake Erie. Each winter I lead a yoga retreat/experience in Costa Rica. Check out these websites for more info:
