In the autumn of 2014 I was minding my own business trying hard to find my place in the rat race when I was ambushed by yoga. My life went topsy-turvy and inside out – in a good way. But I felt disoriented, my head was spinning and I couldn’t figure out what was happening to me. I decided that instead of seeking psychological counseling I would enroll in a Yoga-Teacher-Training course through Moksha Yoga and offered at the Living Yoga Center in Champaign. I finished the 200-hour teacher-training program in the spring of 2016 and here I am – an instructor at the Living Yoga Center.
My intention is to lead classes where students can focus their gazes inward while participating in a well-balanced series of asanas that workout the entire body. I attempt to create a welcoming and safe atmosphere where yogi’s of all abilities feel supported and comfortable exploring the edge of their capabilities while developing their practices. In addition to leading asana, I participate in and sometimes lead guided meditation (I have been meditating on and off since 1999).
