Q: What brings you to your mat?
A: I am inspired every single day by the complete devotion that BKS Iyengar brought to his asana practice. Working with my body as a way to know myself deeper is what brings me to the mat. I love the intelligence and exactness of the practice as it keeps me awake and present.
Q: What do you aim to provide students who attend your class?⠀
A: I aim to provide my students with a path inward to their deepest self, their true Self and an opportunity to let go of the outer demands. I hope my classes help people feel freedom and confidence in their physical body and some quieting of the mind.
Q: What are you up to off of your mat?⠀
A: I have 2 young daughters so I am busy. My husband and I are in the process of transforming our front lawn into a pollinator garden with only native plants. I am an environmentalist and try to inspire others to help our earth in whatever ways we can. I love to walk in the woods with my dog and someone I love and I spend a lot of time preparing nourishing food.
