Gentle and Therapeutic Yoga
Thank you for visiting my website!
I am very proud to be a certified Body Balance Yoga® Teacher and a Registered Yoga Teacher 500 Hour (RYT500) with the Yoga Alliance. I am also a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists. Body Balance Yoga® is a style of therapeutic yoga appropriate for people of all abilities developed by my dear friend, mentor, and teacher, Jenny Otto. Jenny is a nationally known yoga teacher trainer, yoga therapist, and KMI Structural Integrator .
I am also certified to teach by Lakshmi Voelker in Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga ™, by Nischala Joy Devi in Yoga of the Heart® (which is geared toward heart and cancer patients), and by Jacci Reynolds in Pranakriya Prenatal Yoga. I have also trained with Karen O’Donnell Clarke to be a practitioner of Yoga Heals Us, Adaptive Yoga for People with Multiple Sclerosis. Whenever I practice and teach yoga, I integrate these other styles of therapeutic yoga into Body Balance Yoga®. I am grateful beyond words to have been a student of these wonderful, exceptional, and renowned teachers.
With more than 35 years in education,including, most recently, teaching 11 years at Loyola University Maryland, I bring my teaching experience to my yoga classes. I teach group classes, workshops, and privately at the Yoga Center of Columbia in Columbia, Maryland and, proudly, along with Jenny Otto, at Balanced Life Skills in Annapolis, Maryland. In whatever class I teach, my students learn how to incorporate yoga into everyday life. Please note that I am not a medical professional nor qualified to diagnose and treat. I can only pass along my knowledge of therapeutic yoga to others. I truly believe that anyone can do yoga and benefit from the never-ending possibilities that it offers.
P.S. I am currently working on a Master of Science in Nutrition and Integrated Health at the Tai Sophia Institute for the Healing Arts. Stay tuned!
