About Your Yoga Instructor:
As a yoga teacher, I am deeply influenced by the personal journey that brought me to yoga practice.
I began my professional life as a wildlife biologist and environmental scientist. Serving the natural environment and helping to recover endangered species was my way of giving to a greater good. This is a concept that I carry daily into my yogic lifestyle, both in teaching and in practice, seeking to serve my communities in a way that supports strength, healing, and sustainability. I also bring my science background to my students through yoga retreats in locations that provide the incomparable forces of nature as a backdrop to our yoga journeys. My retreats incorporate hikes through nature, identifications of rare species, and meditations on the privileges and responsibilities of living in a world that will go on for millennia past our natural lives.
I have additional specialized training in anatomy, meditation, and Yoga Nidra.
