About Me

Teaching weekly classes for the last 10 years from my home studio. I obtained my 300-hour advanced teacher of therapeutic yoga certificate (giving me my 500-hour certificate) in 2016 and became a certified Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher in 2017. I am certified to facilitate the Overcome Anxiety Clinic. I am building my yoga therapy business and recently completed the 800 hours of study required to become a certified yoga therapist (C-IAYT). I also have 25 years of experience as a health policy analyst.

About My Service

I currently teach from my small home-based studio and am building a therapeutic yoga business offering group and private sessions with therapeutic foci. I teach introduction to yoga classes, beginner and beyond beginner yoga classes, yoga for seniors/older adults and specialty clinics including the Overcome Anxiety Clinic. I am a Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher and Professional Yoga Therapist.
