Why teach yoga? No better feeling than facilitating others to the realization that they have the ability to heal themselves physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually through the practice of yoga.

A quote that you live by? You change your thoughts, you change your world.
Morning ritual? Husband and dog snuggles to yoga to coffee and brekky.
Stargazer or sunriser? Oh man…can my answer be both?
Mountain or beach? Oh no….please don’t make me choose.
Anything else? An inspirational friend/teacher convinced me that yoga would improve my skills in the other activities I enjoy. Once I realized she was right I never looked back…and the benefits continue to flow into my life.
