Interestingly, my yoga practice began in 2000 in Vermont years after my studies in Tibetan Buddhism in India in 1988. Yoga has been an important addition to my foundation in Buddhism and my meditation practice; as I have always been very active and cherish the connection of breath, mindfulness and graceful movement that yoga offers for the health of my body, mind and soul. I have experience with a wide variety of styles including Ashtanga, Iyengar, Sivananda and Anusara. I have taken numerous workshops in these traditions over the years. I was 200 HR Yoga Alliance certified by YogaVermont in 2012, and have been teaching yoga ever since. I have a bachelors degree in social work which contributes to my understanding of our human condition and the needs that lead to a heathier, happier life. I have completed Level 2 training in Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy (individualized yoga therapy that fosters release of held emotions in the body through present moment awareness while engaging in gentle asanas).
I live in Charlotte, Vermont and currently teach Vinyasa Yoga online via Zoom, outdoors in Shelburne at All Souls Interfaith Gathering, at Otter Creek Yoga in Middlebury and private individualized or semi-private classes at personal homes.
Prior to COVID-19 I taught at Otter Creek Yoga in Middlebury and Yoga Roots in Shelburne for many years. I co-taught two Yoga Alliance certified Teacher Trainings at Yoga Roots. I have taught meditation at Middlebury College for students and faculty for many years and yoga and meditation at Waldorf High School in Shelburne. I am back teaching in Middlebury at Otter Creek Yoga Studio since June, outside at All Souls Interfaith Gathering in Shelburne and at a small local art studio in Charlotte (see schedule page for more info). I am available to teach yoga and meditation for schools, businesses, and individuals upon request.
