I love and appreciate the paradoxical nature of yoga. Yoga brings movement, yet stillness; challenge, yet ease; fierceness, yet gentleness; strength; yet surrender. As a yoga teacher I have witnessed the beautiful evolution of body, mind and spirit, in myself and in my students on and off the mat. I am also a college professor with a PhD in Special Education. Yoga instruction is a natural extension of my calling, vocation, and passion for empowerment through education. I have been practicing yoga for over twenty years and have served as a yoga instructor at several yoga studios in Anchorage, Alaska, Wisconsin and Northern Michigan, establishing myself as an EYT-200 instructor. I received my yoga teacher training from Anchorage Yoga in 2011.
