I began practicing yoga with a book by Richard Hittleman titled “28 Days of Yoga” when I was in college.  A few years later I also started practicing with Lilias Folan when she taught on PBS.  I found videos of many wonderful teachers practicing when I could fit it in while my children were young. When I began to go to classes my husband and children would ask me not to and do something with them instead.  After a while my husband and children began to suggest I go to class because they could see how calm and relaxed I was after taking class!

My completed yoga teacher trainings include:
 200 hour teacher training through Westlake Yoga in 2008
 20 hour Relax and Renew Restorative training in 2009
 500 hour teacher training through Yogaworks in 2013
 22 hour Teaching Methodology and Practicum in Gentle, Senior, Chair yoga, Somatic yoga and Therapeutic yoga in 2014
