I have been doing yoga for 25 years. In 2001 I took a 650 hour training in Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. I felt that it would give me a. Enter understanding of how yoga helps our bodies heal. In 2002 I graduated from the program. I began offering one on one yoga therapy sessions. I opened a studio at The Center for Personal and Family Counseling, and started to teach small group classes. When the counseling center expanded I gave up my space. I have taken numerous weeklong trainings with my mentor, Angela Farmer. I resonate with the feminine form of yoga. I believe that exploring our bodies through yoga is physically empowering and the awareness and attention to our breath enables emotional regulation and centering. I have been teaching my Monday & Wednesday 8:30-10 class for five years. It is a moderately difficult class but everyone is welcome and reminded and encouraged to stay present in their own body and to never cross into pain.
