Yoga | Meditation | Pranayama (Breathwork) | Qigong

"I began studying yoga in 1979 at Saddleback College in southern California. I studied with Sathya Sai Baba in India, learned breathwork from Sondra Ray, studied yoga through the Self Realization Fellowship of Paramahansa Yogananda, yoga with the Nityananda Institute, and Qigong with Supreme Science Qigong. I have been teaching yoga and meditation since 1996.

I primarily teach a form of hatha yoga sometimes called Viniyoga, Vinyasa or Desikachar (named after its founder). It is the oldest form of hatha yoga (over 1200 years old).  This method integrates breath with movement while creating strength and flexibility.

Rather than ask people to conform to an ideal postural form, this tradition makes poses conform to the needs of the individual by utilizing poses/postures (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama) and other yoga techniques.

Certifications: Nationally certified in massage therapy (licensed in Washington), I received my training from the International Professional School of Bodywork (an Institute of Psycho-Structural Balance) and the Oregon School of Massage. I also received training in counseling and facilitation from the Sage Corporation and hold an Applied Behavioral Science degree from George Williams College (George Williams was the founder of the YMCA) in Downers Grove, Illinois. I received my Reiki certification through Usui Reiki Ryoho in 2006.

I have worked with chiropractors, acupuncturists, physical therapists and medical practitioners. In addition, I have experience as a Master Massage Therapist at the well-known Ritz-Carlton Spa in Laguna Niguel, California and have worked for Club Corporation of America at the Renaissance Club in Phoenix, Arizona and the Courtside Tennis Club in Los Gatos, California."
