My Yoga practice began in 2002. I fell in love as I found local teachers that taught me mind opening concepts, and physically rejuvenating practices. Sierra College provided my first teachers, and Yoga became a major highlight in my AA Liberal Arts degree. As my path unfolded, in July of 2011, I made my way to Mount Madonna, in Watsonville, Ca. and immersed myself in a 200+ hour Yoga Teacher Training with Baba Hari Dass, with his many students of 40 + years. There I received a solid foundation in the roots of Yoga, and a real connection to new and familiar practices.
The Ashtanga, Tantra and Hatha paths are the main influences in my work as yoga student and teacher. These paths explore the deep roots and eight limbs of Classical Yoga. The most recent developments to my practice include exploring Acro-Yoga and I am truly enjoying the challenges. Trauma Informed Yoga training was recently offered at Yoga Well, and I am delighted to add these skills to my teachings.
All Yoga is designed to bring us back into our oneness in our spirit, in our own lives, and in the lives of our community. All practices bring us together. Every practice affects every practice.
