Everyday living and a lifetime of learning are the raw materials from which I construct both a practice that sustains me and a life I love. Mine is an integrated approach. Whether teaching yoga, guiding meditation, hosting a gathering, or educating about Ayurveda and essential oils, I hold space with the intention to nurture in others a sense of maitrī, or lovingkindness for oneself, the foundation for whole-hearted living. I have been blessed to have teachers and guides whose authentic expression of the teachings inspire my own commitment to embodied living with passion and purpose. Twenty years into my own journey on the yogic path, I have experienced firsthand the alchemical power and transformative potential of this practice and I am honored and grateful to accompany others along their path.
