Into 2012, I was called to practice Restorative yoga and alignment-based lyengar. I completed my 200 hour Dharma coach yoga teacher who studied with Katherine. I am RYT certified.
Through my study of self I realize that yoga is for everyBODY. My desire is to empower and assist others to transform their lives for the better with the gift of yoga.
