About this pro

I have a great deal of experience in mentoring and guiding students from all backgrounds. I am welcoming, accepting, and open to applying any modality that works best for the individual I am working with. I am patient, compassionate, and pragmatic, with an approach that is simultaneously spiritual and practical.

I love how the tools of yoga therapy and meditation can work quickly and effectively to create holistic changes, and also how they can shape our entire lives by changing our attitudes and perspectives. I would be lost and angry without the benefits I have received from these practices and continue to receive every day. I love that the tools are reliable but also have so much variety that I know I will never stop learning or making new discoveries.

FAQs


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

I like to have an initial consultation with everyone to make a plan and get to know each other. I then like to begin witb at least 3 yoga therapy sessions over 6 weeks to begin a practice plan that will impact the client effectively. In these initial sessions, I will conduct assessments and work with the student to find practices that help them to meet their goals in a way thag fits into their life.

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

Training and experience are everything. A yoga teacher should have an absolute minimum of 200 hours of training to teach group classes, and significantly more to be equipped to successfully meet privately with clients for anything more than basic instruction of yoga postures. Students should be careful to seek out teachers with good training and experience, who are mindful of ethical guidelines. Teachers registered with Yoga Alliance are more likely to be seriously commit to their craft and adhere to an ethical scope of practice. Be wary of anyone claiming to teach "therapeutically" who doesn't have yoga therapy training. There is a huge difference between a yoga teacher with 200 hours of training and a yoga therapist, who has over 1,000 hours of training and a minimum 5 years of experience.
