I am a student of life, of nature, a seeker of wisdom.
My life’s early journey entailed my sitting in the woods near my home for hours on end, studying philosophies and books that would try to encapsulate all that I had been experiencing since I was the little inquisitive child who wondered about the nature of life. I put myself through college and became an educator while studying how various herbs, foods and practices could benefit the mind and the body. After living in the Pennsylvania hills for several years where I grew and preserved my own vegetables and even opted to go without electricity for a time, I moved to Boulder, Colorado in search of the yoga that I had been reading about since high school in the 1970’s. I taught children in private school all the while studying various energetic healing modalities in the foothills of the Rockies. Those modalities included macrobiotics, Eurythmy (therapeutic dance) and healing through sound and meditation. I later moved back to Pennsylvania and completed a master’s degree in Literature before relocating to Florida in the mid 1980’s. There, I spent 12 years living on an ashram. For twenty years, post ashram living, I have dedicated myself to the study of India’s ancient sciences, which include both yoga and Ayurveda. I love the path of these ancient traditions and have wholeheartedly embraced them both through extensive study, experience and travel.
Most of my Ayurvedic education was at California College of Ayurveda and at The Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico with the amazing Dr. Lad et. al. I have also experienced the profound healing effects of Ayurveda in India.
Some of my favorite things: practicing yoga, being in nature, sitting with my cat, listening to music, talking with my husband, patronizing cafes, and connecting with people from all walks of life. I also love to travel to foreign lands where I am able to push the edges of my comfort zone.
My main practice is in Florida where I see clients, conduct workshops, and teach yoga and yogic principles.
My yoga practice is rooted in Ashtanga. I have been sharing yoga for almost 15 years, gleaned from practicing with lineage holders like Annie Pace, Mark and Joanne Darby, David Swenson, Tim Feldmann and Kino MacGregor.
