- Teaches students:
- Ages 12+
- Teaching since:
I've practiced yoga and meditation since 2000, and began teaching since 2003. It wasn't long after taking my first yoga class that I realized it was working on a lot more than my tight hamstrings! My mood improved, I gained patience, and I began handling life's stressful situations much more skillfully. That inspired me to become a certified teacher and share the benefits with people of all ages and abilities.
I'm also an outdoor and environmental educator. One of my passions is incorporating mindfulness and meditation into my teaching in those areas.
My teaching style is relaxed and attentive, and I like to infuse my lessons with gentle humor when appropriate. I'm open and flexible with regard to meeting the individual needs and interests of my students.
A year-long training program on teaching mindfulness meditation to youth, focusing on mindfulness in educational settings.
Completed continuation education requirements and volunteer hours in the fields of ecology and environmental stewardship.
A nine-month intensive training program through one of the country's leading yoga schools. I'm certified to teach all aspects of yoga, including asana (poses), pranayama (breathwork), and meditation.
