Yoga News

What a great Autumn of yoga! I taught a 15 hour Yoga Nidra teacher training over three weekends, then co-lead a farm yoga retreat. I’m grateful for the opportunity to lead amazing students in my unique blend of yoga and introspective exercises. 

I’m enthusiastic to announce that I began Gary Kratsow’s American Viniyoga Foundations course in April, 2018 with the intention of becoming a IAYT certified yoga therapist. I’ve studied with Gary for over ten years and am honored to continue learning authentic yoga therapy techniques from this master teacher.

My daoist taiji studies continue at Alternative Health Group in Chicago and with Patrick Kelly. I”ll study with Patrick again in  Zurich, 2019 and I am SO excited.
