Yoga and Meditation

Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-2000) with the Yoga Alliance since 2008

Bio:

I took my first yoga class in Minneapolis in 1981; I continued in an on-again off-again fashion for the next two decades, at which point my personal practice of yoga began to deepen.

I was given an opportunity to teach with Lakes Area Yoga Association (LAYA) after receiving their yoga teacher training, as well as a  certification in Pilates instruction, in 2006.  That year I began to offer Yoga-Pilates blend classes and realized that I LOVE this sort of work.

In 2008, I took a rigorous teacher training course from Mary Beth Nehl at the Yoga Loft in Willmar. I received a RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) from the Yoga Alliance, 200-hour level, in November of that year.

I have been offering three or four classes a week since receiving my RYT certification. Offering these classes has become central to my own practice and is a labor of love.

FAQs:

What is your style?

I am Iyengar-influenced but prefer to teach an eclectic blend of asana, pranayama and relaxation. All of my classes are “gentle” and accessible to people of most ages, sizes and abilities.
