About this pro

Not on a highway. Not in a retail location. This unique yoga studio is in a private Seminole Heights home and in a beautiful, magical spot on the Hillsborough River. It is very different from many of today's commercial yoga enterprises. Set back in nature, surrounded by art and full of tree-filtered light. 

Helping people see their own transformation unfolding within their yoga practice. It is very enjoyable to see and experience others as they become aware of a new perspective to their true nature.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

New students are encouraged to share their previous yoga experiences and to discuss their particular needs with me. Together, we work out a plan that best meets the needs of the individual student.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am registeed through Yoga Alliance having completed 500 hours of yoga teacher training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Lenox, MA. My training includes classic yoga, pranayama and several styles of meditation.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Yoga group classes are $15 for 1 hour class.

Private yoga classes are offered at $45 for 1 hour.


How did you get started teaching?

I've been practicing yoga for over 30 years and decided to share my experience and love for the practice. I teach to learn. I've been involved with adult learning for many year, having taught classes in other subjects and enjoy exchanging knowledge with others.


What types of students have you worked with?

My students range in age from about 18-80 with varying degrees of physicality including some students with limited mobility.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

i am particularly fond of an event in my studio when 16 students showed up for class. My space comfortably accommodates about 12-14 students. This meant that I did not have space for my own yoga mat! I enjoyed walking around the room doing the poses alongside students in a joyful, albeit crowded bunch of yoga practitioners. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Not all yoga classes and not all yoga teachers are alike. Students should study the yoga class descriptions, ask the teacher questions or call ahead to inquire about the yoga classes if they are new to the practice. Students should go to classes with an open mind and try out different teachers to find the yoga style and teacher that best suits their tastes.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should give some thought to special needs they may have such as wanting to improve flexibility, or to relieve pain or soreness they may be experiencing. The student can then be prepared to ask the yoga teacher how they might achieve their goals. These kinds of discussions can also help the yoga teacher steer the student clear of certain practices that may not be advisable for the student.
