Yoga Training and Education
I was lucky to walk into the Mindful Body yoga studio in San Francisco in 1996, and have Yolanda Bain as my very first yoga teacher. I learned yoga can be nurturing. When I moved back home to Michigan, I earned my 200 Level Teacher Training Certification with Karina Ayn Mirsky at the Sangha Yoga Institute. I learned the utmost importance of teaching safety, as well as sequencing, breath work and the importance of Savasana. I continued on the learning path with Judith Hanson Lasater to become a Relax and Renew Trainer. This knowledge of restorative yoga helps guide all classes with an edge of softness. I’m grateful for my time in-person and online with Sarah Powers, learning once again how yoga is nourishing and healing, from a Yin Yoga perspective. Spending time with Sharon Salzberg helped me integrate the Loving Kindness meditation in all my classes. Multiple workshops with Angela Farmer have cultivated an inner trust as a teacher to invite students to move away from the sometimes rigid grid of yoga poses and into their own unique bodies to find the beautiful essence of being alive. And the learning continues…I'm so grateful for my teachers.
