I began practicing yoga in 1997, and became a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 200-hour level in 2000. In 2005 I became owner of the Discover Yoga studio in Redmond (WA). The next year I travelled to India and spent time at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram, training with TKV Desikachar and his son Kausthub. I became certified at the 500-hour level in 2008. I have also trained with Ellen Morell, Collette Crawford, Gary Kraftsow, Donna Farhi, Laura Yon, and many other great teachers.
I have taught over 5000 hours of classes, which included ongoing group classes and series, workshops and retreats, and 200-hour yoga teacher trainings, as well as private instruction. I owned Discover Yoga—a Registered Yoga School—in Redmond for 12 years, nurturing it with love as it became a treasured community asset, frequently named as the “Best of Redmond” among local yoga studios. I currently teach yoga and meditation classes in Issaquah and Bellevue.
In addition, I practice a method of focus that works with the life force energy of the body. Life force energy, also known as God’s love, or prana in Sanskrit, is the flow of energy that sustains all living beings. The benefits can be shared in-person as well as remotely. I am a certified practitioner of Quantum Touch®, a method of natural healing that works with the life force energy.
My passion is to unite my years of yoga experience with my training in life force energy to offer a well-balanced Body, Mind and Spirit connection.
