“If you can breathe, you can practice Yoga.”

Breath-centered Yoga enables anyone to realize the benefits of Yoga practice, regardless of physical condition, age, or temperament. By emphasizing simple, precise movements aligned with breath, I can help anyone develop a safe, effective Yoga practice that will help them be happier, healthier, and better balanced. To start, consider one of my group classes at Turtles Yoga and Wellness in Beaverton or contact me for a private lesson.

I began my practice in my late 40s in response to health challenges that included lifelong obesity and its attendant symptoms. During the ensuing nine years, I lost nearly 95 pounds and discovered joy in linking body, breath, and mind through Yoga. Check out my before-and-after photo!

All of my teachers are students of T.K.V. Desikachar and Gary Kraftsow, both of whom teach that Yoga should be adapted to the individual.

I am a graduate of the 500-hour teacher training program at Yoga Shala of Portland.

I teach two times per month at the Washington County Community Corrections Center in Hillsboro. Read my blog to learn more…

Yoga outside the studio

I love my studio classes, but I’m also deeply committed to taking Yoga to the students! Currently, I teach eight classes per week at Cedar Hills Hospital and a weekly lunchtime class at Lattice Semiconductor.
Plus, I’m always looking for new clients! Just contact me to arrange for a meeting and to discuss terms.
