The Fun Stuff:
I love to teach and inspire others to want to discover more about who they are and how to live from the light inside of them. My focus for the past 20 years has been both yoga and life coaching. I view them as very similar. In yoga I go through people’s bodies to get to their hearts and in coaching I go through their minds.
My yoga training began in 1988 when I took my first yoga class – it was love at first sight although it took me a few years to find my place in the yoga world. I met my teacher, JJ Gormley in 1992 and began teaching soon after. I have my registration through Yoga Alliance at the 500-hour level and have amassed over 15,000 glorious hours of teaching. I have taught both beginning level teacher trainings (graduating over 60 teachers) and advanced level (graduating 9 teachers) in Yoga Alliance registered programs. I continue to learn more about yoga through trainings with a few of my favorite teachers: Judith Hanson Lasater, Jo Zukovitch, Ramanand Patel, among others.
My life coaching experience began…well…when I was born. I have been doing it my whole life! Professionally it began in 1996 and I have coached for over 2500 hours in the ensuing years. I graduated from CoachU’s coaching program.
My hobbies are cooking, knitting, writing, reading inspirational works, homeschooling my children, keeping a nature journal, photography, and hiking.
My husband, Ron, and I have two gorgeous children, Sierra (11 years) and Zack (8 years).
Moments That Made Me Who I Am:
- Having children...I have never had anything that has prompted me to want to be a more compassionate, joyful, and loving human more than they do.
- Reading the quote: "Fill the rest of your life with your dreams and live the unforgettable." (Fyodor Dostoevsky)
- Meeting my yoga teacher in 1992. And the rest is history, as they say...
- Finding a man who really "gets it" and finding out he wanted me back! (And, did I mention he is a Tai Chi master? Yes, our house is very peaceful...most of the time...)
- Finding fellow muses to muse with me.
Please understand it may take a few days to get back to you.
