Yoga is my home base. It is the place where I lay my head, pour my weight, trust myself, find courage, and quieten or stimulate my mind into creative, flowing, joyous thinking. I have practiced yoga since 1990 and am a Yoga Alliance 500 E-RYT since 2007. Yoga class is the place where I meet friends, old and new and commune with the great teachings and practices of yoga. My studies have delved into a range of styles with incredible teachers. Yoga is the time to steady & still the mind. It can also be a time of great upheaval- where falsities are dislodged, and truths are suddenly, viscerally clear. When we bravely choose to step into those openings, whole new worlds appear. Yoga is a life-long love. The more I integrate its overflowing and gracious teachings into my body, my mind, my heart, my spirit, the more I realize how much I don't know! I like to open those places as a teacher, where wonderment and surety meet. I love collaborating on retreats and trainings with talented teachers and professionals. I graduated massage school in 1993 and am a licensed NC Massage Therapist, specializing in Thai Massage. My BFA is in Dance and Choreography from VCU (2002) and I dance locally with the Dance Cooperative and Alban Elved. My family is tops- two girls and one husband- keep me real and busy! I am thrilled to be joining the Longwave Camp of Yogis!
