About the Teacher
I have been teaching yoga for eight years in the Evansville area, first at local studios, then my own yoga studio, and now in a beautiful space at Aldersgate United Methodist Church. I do yoga for the many benefits it gives me, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, and I love that I've been given the opportunity to teach yoga to others.
I practice and teach in a lineage of yoga, known as viniyoga, a tradition which emphasizes appropriate application of yoga techniques to benefit students as individuals. My classes incorporate asana, or yoga poses, breathing and meditation.
I also teach students in private lessons and yoga therapy sessions, and I am a licensed Massage Therapist practicing in Evansville.
