About this pro

I am a multi-certified, Iyengar Yoga instructor with over 25 years experience.  I have worked with Mr BKS Iyengar and his daughter, Geeta, in Puna, India to hone my ability to work with students that have specific medical issues and physical injuries.  I have also worked as a social worker at Shoal Creek Hospital and Dell Children's Hospital. Additionally, I am a life coach and massage therapist of over 25 years.

All classes I offer are limited to six students. My desire is to provide students with a semi-private environment where there is room to ask questions and where adjustments and redirection are always a part of the class tapestry. 

I LOVE sharing my experience, strength and hope in regards to self-care.  I enjoy collaborating with students and respect that together we will learn and grow.

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

Ideally a new student and I walk through an intake process by phone or we meet briefly before a student's first class.  This intake process gives us a chance to get to know one another, identify medical conditions and/or injuries, and determine initial goals and desires.  

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

I am a multi-certified, Iyengar yoga instructor with over 25 years experience. Shorty after graduating from the University of Texas, I worked as a therapist at Shoal Creek Hospital offering DBT, CBT, Yoga and meditation groups.  Most recently, I have held groups at Dell Children's Hospital.  In conjunction, for over 27 years, I have been the sole owner and CEO of CAN DO Yoga, Life Coaching and Bodywork, in Austin, Texas and Northern California.  I am also a myofascial bodyworker of 28 years and a spiritual-emotional, life coach.

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching when my first Iyengar Yoga teacher insisted I go through the initial, three year, certification process.  I will never regret that decision. What a life changer!

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with young, energetic teenagers, preganant women, middle age students that want to love and care for their aging and sometimes injured bodies, mental health patients, and older, refined students. My eldest student is 90-years-old! 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Skiing in Taos, New Mexico with my husband and children.

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

Identify what your initial physical, emotional and spiritual needs/goals are.  Discuss your goals with a potential teacher.  Inquire if and how they can support you.

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

Ask if ALL information is held with the upmost confidentiality.
