Yoga Teacher

Why teach yoga?

I love it and love seeing others find themselves in the exploration process of a sequence.

Hometown

Fostoria, OH

3 Favorite Book(s) or Movie(s)

Light on Yoga by BKS Iyengar -  It is so full of information and my go to when I am trying to sort something out.

My Cousin Vinny - for so many reasons

Hitch (or most movies with Will Smith)

Favorite Yoga Pose - Why?

Dolphin to Pincha Mayurasana. I love that the whole body is engaged. I feel like we cheat dolphin by rushing into the arm balance. We need to spend the time walking the feet forward to let the legs float up into the balance.

When I am not teaching or practicing yoga:

I spend time with my husband or my daughters (3 of them) and I love a good estate sale!

When I was little, I dreamed of:

Being a ballerina.

Now I dream of:

Everyone being happing and getting along!

What else I want you to know about me:

I have lived in many states: Ohio, Florida, Colorado, Utah, Mississippi, and landed in Oklahoma in 2005. I also got to live in Italy for 3 years.

I have 3 daughters, 6 grand babies, and one mini schnauzer fur baby.
