I met Baba Hari Das in 1976, and Nancy Gilgoff in 1978. I studied with Patabhi Jois in 2000. over the years, I have had a simple but regular yoga practice; sometimes for hours and sometimes for only 30 minutes. I started learning yoga before there were weekly classes so we had to learn how to create our own yoga practice.
Yoga has been a part of my life for a long time.
I know that the Ashtanga Yoga style is a very tough system, but the way I was taught, by Nancy was to do what was possible and "all was coming". The way i like to teach is a softer version the same way I was taught. And I love to share what I have learned about the body, and mind over the years.
About My Service
I teach beginning Ashtanga Yoga classes. I always teach the four purifications and give a simple overview of traditional Ashtanga Yoga Eight Limbs and all (as taught by Baba Hari Das). Then we start with the Primary Series as taught by Patabhi Jois.
I have taught workshops, and weekly classes starting in the 1980's to share with friends.
I stopped teaching for a while to help take care of my aged parents, and am ready to begin again, as it give me so much pleasure to share my passion for yoga with students.
