I am well seasoned, over four decades of experience as a practitioner, and have published many articles on Yoga.
I am also a registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance.
The relationships I build with students, learning from them.
Pam is a great Yoga teacher. She pays attention to everyone individually in the class, helping us to do the poses correctly. She's very good about telling us to listen to our bodies and not stress or strain our bodies. She describes and shows us the poses in a very easily understood way. She adapts each pose to what each student needs for their body. She's also very patient. I highly recommend her!
I have had several different yoga instructors over the years and the result was I decided I didn’t like yoga. Pam’s yoga class is exactly what I am looking for and now I like yoga. Pam explains each position well. She challenges you without being unrealistic about the abilities of the students. She also shares the philosophy and attitudes of yoga. I feel that I am learning the full disciplines of yoga in Pam’s class.
It depends on the student and what the needs of the student are as well as the subject of the lesson. I take into consideration all aspects of student needs and goals to assess how to proceed.
I have a Masters in Arts in English Literature and have taught college English writing, composition, and literature for the last 17 years. Before that I was an English Teacher in high school.
I have a 200-hour Yoga Teaching certificate and 4 decades of practice in addition to many published articles I have written on the subject of Yoga.
For individual private Yoga sessions, I charge $15.00 dollars, unless I have to travel over 25 miles, which increases the fee to $18.00. Group rates are $10.00 per person.
For English writing/grammar lessons, I charge $20.00 per hour for one on one.
I started teaching English right out of college because I was an essay reader/grader as my job going through school. The high school then hired me.
I started teaching Yoga to friends going back forty years in high school and then by recommendation from other students and teachers. I teach seniors at a local gym now and private session in small groups and one on one at my home or at students’ homes.
All types, young, older, senior.
I’m fond of astronomy and celestial displays, like the solar eclipse last summer and a recent super moon. I enjoyed my sangha (community) during my teacher training and Yoga Day at Loyola Marymount University.
Find someone who is a good listenener/observer as well as a good instructor.
They should think through their specific goals and expectations for what the teacher can and will provide.
