Green Lotus Yoga & Healing Center
Green Lotus provides community-based integrative wellness care through company-owned and licensed facilities. It also places qualified healers and teachers in businesses, schools, non-profits, and other off-site locations. As founder, i also personally teach yoga and meditation. We have trained hundreds of teachers in small groups to deliver highly personalized instruction to help students find their authentic voices. I am a Judith Lasater accredited Relax and Renew instructor, and earned my 300-hour Mindfulness Yoga& Meditation credentials at Spirit Rock in California. The basis if my work is to help people find their authentic voices and to have them discover their inherent power to heal.
Working in this field insires me because people are open to exploring and finding additional methods for wellness. When student and teacher listen carefully to each other with compassion, change happens.
