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

In a public class setting, I would look at the overall symmetry of a student and how the student initiates movement. That would give me huge clues about how to best guide the student where the integrity of the body and mind is restored.

In a private class setting, students typically have very specific issues to address. I would first examine the issues and target possible triggers to work with.

A good teacher serves as an excellent guide to a healthy life and motivates students to open doors of discovery.

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

I have been practicing yoga and intuitive energy work for 30 years and teaching for 23 years. Not only have I had over thousands of training hours, I have also trained and mentored many yoga teachers over my long career as a teacher.

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

How did you get started teaching?

I dedicated my life to promoting natural wellness and wanted to share what I've learned over the years.

What types of students have you worked with?

I worked with students across a wide spectrum of demographics, as well as people recovering from surgeries and those suffering from chronic illness.

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

Work with a teacher who will give you "vegetables" as opposed to "sweets." In other words, what is best for us is often not something that allows for "instant gratification."

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

I believe it is less about what the student needs to think through before talking to the teacher; I believe a good teacher has the skills to probe for relevant information from the student.
