FAQs


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

Generally I go an initial assessment of students, at no charge. I like to identify their goals, strengths & limitations. This helps me tailor classes to fit the student.


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

I have my RN degree& then later got my MBA. Understanding the business process of assessment & planning had helped me create unique programs for students

i have practiced yoga for over 10 years. Like most yogis I would start & stop. About 5 years ago I made a choice to be consistent with my practice. The first step was becoming a 200 hour Registered Yoga Instructor. Since then I have studied , and trained, with many Master level instructors. I am very involved in workshops & trainings , so that I can continue to learn.... And then share with others 


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

private lessons start st $60-$75. I  welcome small groups to join together for semi private lessons. This format allows the cost to be shared, while maintaining the small 1:1 instruction.

additionally I teach from home & in a few studios & corporate arenas. Classes can be purchased in 4 week packages or ongoing . Contact me for specifics. My goal is to help as many people as possible experience the gift of yoga. To that end , I will work with you on schedules & pricing

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

Find out what the teacher offers that is unique. Also inquire about guidelines for scheduling , cancelling etc. lastly, I would encourage students to find out if the teacher provided assists and feedback around the physical practice to keep their bodies safe.
