teacher - gentle/restorative yoga
I feel so fortunate that my personal journey, which began with fitness and wellness, has led me to the path of yoga and well being here at East Meets West Yoga. I have practiced yoga for more than 30 years, initially in the Iyengar tradition. My practice later evolved into a Vinyasa practice, supplemented by Restorative classes, Yin Yoga, and Buddhist meditation.
Yoga has truly transformed my life, physically, mentally, and spiritually. In 2000, I participated in a year-long teacher training through the Himalayan Institute and have been fortunate to work with many leading yoga teachers in the US, Mexico, Italy, and Costa Rica . I enjoy leading Gentle/Restorative Yoga classes because it illuminates the therapeutic nature of yoga practice through the power of breath awareness and the gift of conscious relaxation.
