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

I start out with a basic class, whether that's Yoga, Pilates or Senior Fitness to assess how the student feels and responds.  I also send a follow up questionnaire after to see what felt good, what didn't and what the student would like to continue to tailor each class to his/her needs.

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

I am a certified, Yoga-Alliance registered Yoga instructor, A certified Pilates Teacher as well as certified in CPR/First Aid by the American Red Cross.

How did you get started teaching?

I suffered form panic attacks and insomnia.  Someone suggested yoga and I was immediately hooked.  When I saw the changes it made, how my sleep improved and anxiety lessened, it was my desire to help others feel the same -- to let them know they did not have to suffer any longer.

What types of students have you worked with?

All types -- from pre-K children to Seniors.  I've worked with pre-natal students, students with fibromyalgia, autism, special needs.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I was asked to host a yoga event at a baby shower.  It was a wonderful way to get a group of friends together to pratice.  It was great for the mom-to-me to share her love of yoga with everyone and something completely different to add to the usual events at a shower.

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

Make sure your instructor gives you the lesson YOU want. Never be afraid to ask questions on a move and/or WHY you are doing the move.  He/she should be most interested in your health, goals and needs instead of just leading another lesson.

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

The student should take into account his/her health and any special issues (high blood pressure, pregnancy, injuries, etc), whether or not they can be consistent in their practice (they can do this by asking the instructor for some moves they can practice at home), whether the lessons are affordable and how far they are really willing to travel for the lesson and if this really fits into their schedule.
