I believe we all have the capacity to relieve discomfort and build resilience so we can move through life able to meet the challenges that come our way.
Having earned my 200hr Yoga Teacher certification in Integrative Yoga Therapeutics in 2013, my experience since then in teaching yoga includes populations of all ages and abilities, ranging from those training for athletic competitions to those whose health has been compromised by disease. My style of teaching includes intentional movement to build physical awareness, strength and resilience, focused attention to build strength of mind, breath practices to manage energy levels with a process of inquiry so that you can learn from experience what is best for you.
In 2020, I completed the Beaumont School of Yoga Therapy program to become a Certified Yoga Therapist, which included over 1000 hours of classroom and in-person clinical training. As a certified yoga therapist, I share tools which can be used to reverse discomfort for all conditions. My areas of specialty include applications of yoga therapy for aging, anxiety, cardiovascular health, arthritis and stress.
Currently on staff at Michigan Heart and Cardiovascular Center's Intensive Cardiac Rehabilitation program, I lead interactive Stress Educations workshops, including Stress and Health, Managing Moods and Relationships and New Thoughts, New Behaviors. At the Ann Arbor YMCA, I offer Yin Yoga and Mindful Vinyasa classes. In addition, I teach and counsel future yoga therapists as faculty of the International Institute of Yoga Therapy (www.iiyogatherapy.com).
