I like to meet with my clients and assess their physical ability.  I like to discussion their goals for what they want from our sessions.

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching as a student at the yoga studio I was atteding.  I began teaching beginners.  I love to teach beginners, but over the years I have found I like working and teaching more therapeutically to individual as they are learning the amazing gift of yoga.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with knee issues, back issues, osteoporosis as well as neck issues.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently work with a woman who had bone on bone knee issues.  She was in pain when she walked and getting up and down from sitting was extremely painful. With a combination of massage and yoga therapy she was able to walk and get up from sitting with almost no pain.  She eventually had knee replacement but she was able to go a cruise and work in the garden, things that she could not do, giving her some good quality of life until her surgery. She also felt it helped get her ready for the surgery resulting in a faster recovery.


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

The advice I would give to any student is to like your teacher.  You must trust in the teacher's method.  If you don't believe in the teacher's philosophy you probably won't do the homework.  Spend time in conversation and see if you like the teacher as a person.  It will serve you well if you trust and like your teacher as a person.


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

1. Will they listen to you if you feel what they are doing is not working or doesn't feel good.

2. Do they have the credentials to work with your issue.
