“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” Rumi
I love the functioning of the human body and hothe mind-body connection will lead you to a more functional and productive lifestyle.
As a 27 year veteran of teaching Biology, Anatomy, Genetics and Bacteriology for the Gadsden City School System, my love of science and the human body led me to Personal Training in 2000.
After suffering a herniated disc and back surgery, I was led to Pilates to rehab my back.
I trained through the Physical Mind Institute in 2002 and have been teaching Traditional Pilates since then.
I discovered Yoga in 2003 and after training with YogaFit levels 1-2-3, I wanted to dig deeper and was led to my yoga teacher, Carol Stahl, a yoga therapist in 2009.
I completed my 200 hr. Yoga Alliance Certification in 20012, exhaling gratitude to Lynn Jacobs, Springstone Yoga for her loving guidance and to the mentoring of Lawrence Biscontini, in Puerto Rico who helped me “get out of my way” as a teacher.
At present I have over 1,500 hours teaching experience and over 500 training hours including 200 hours Yoga Alliance.
I have trained with Tias Little- Subtle Body, Matthew Sanford- Adaptive Yoga, Sarah Powers- Yin Yoga, Erich Schiffmann- Movement of energy, Nicholai Bachman- Language of Sanskrit, Rolfe gates- Meditation on the Mat to name a few.
I hope to begin my 500 hr. training in Yoga Therapy in the coming year.
I have been able to make this journey with the love and support of Garry, my husband of 43 yrs.
who has been a constant source of support and encouragement.
I invite you to explore your own “mind/Body connection with me in one of the nine classes I teach Monday thru Saturday or schedule private sessions if interested in a deeper study of Yoga.
