♥ Stretch ♥ Strengthen ♥ Balance
|My classes are for everyone and for every BODY!|
|I am very proud to be a certified Body Balance Yoga® Teacher, a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance, and a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists. Body Balance Yoga® is a style of therapeutic yoga appropriate for people of all abilities developed by my dear friend, mentor, and teacher, Jenny Otto. Jenny is a nationally known yoga teacher trainer, yoga therapist, and KMI Structural Integrator.
I am also certified to teach by Lakshmi Voelker in Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga ™, by Nischala Joy Devi in Yoga of the Heart® (which is geared toward heart and cancer patients), and by Jacci Reynolds in Pranakriya Prenatal Yoga. I have also trained with Karen O’Donnell Clarke to be a practitioner of Yoga Heals Us, Adaptive Yoga for People with Multiple Sclerosis. Whenever I practice and teach yoga, I integrate these other styles of therapeutic yoga into Body Balance Yoga®. I am grateful beyond words to have been a student of these wonderful, exceptional, and renowned teachers.
I am a student in the first class of the Master of Science program in Yoga Therapy at the Maryland University of Integrative Health. This is the first program of its kind in the United States. It is exciting to be a part of such an important and growing field.
With more than 35 years in education,including, most recently, teaching 11 years at Loyola University Maryland, I bring my teaching experience to my yoga classes. I teach group classes, workshops, and privately at the Yoga Center of Columbia in Columbia, Maryland and, proudly, along with Jenny Otto, at Balanced Life Skills in Annapolis, Maryland. In whatever class I teach, my students learn how to incorporate yoga into everyday life. Please note that I am not a medical professional nor qualified to diagnose and treat. I can only pass along my knowledge of therapeutic yoga to others. I truly believe that anyone can do yoga and benefit from the never-ending possibilities that it offers.
P.S. I have a Master of Science in Nutrition and Integrative Health from The Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH). I am available for nutrition consultations in person and by Skype. Please email me for an appointment.
