Yoga Instructor with a Wicked Right Cross
I have a long-standing passion for helping people reach their wellness and fitness goals, having spent over 1000 hours teaching adaptive yoga to people with limitations over the past 9+ years. I am certified by PwR, Silver Sneakers and Rock Steady Boxing; have undergone over 500 hours of training from Yoga Alliance, and I am a former U.S. Army medic. Finally, people tell me I have an excellent sense of humor, which is helpful in any endeavor in life - especially boxing.
Certified & Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher
I have studied yoga since 2003 and was certified as a hatha yoga instructor in 2005, when I started my own business teaching private and corporate clients - individually and in groups at fitness centers, yoga studios, and in-home. In my practice I emphasize alignment, strength, mobility, balance, flexibility and function-based movements. In 2017, in what I regard as an effort to add balance to my life I branched out from yoga into boxing and got certified as a boxing coach for Parkinson’s patients with Rock Steady Boxing. I also am a graduate of UC Berkeley with an MA in Sociology (so I'm really happy I have this job!)
