Yoga has changed my life profoundly, not only physically but spiritually as well. During a crisis point in my life I had the thought that I should practice yoga every day. I signed up at a local studio and did go every single day. That was the beginning of a whole new life for me. I began teaching in 2006 and completed my teacher training through Yoga Alliance in 2009 www.yogaalliance.org . I have continued my training with many nationally and internationally known teachers including; Rolf Gates author of Mediations from the Mat www.rolfgates.com , Doug Keller author of Yoga as Therapy www.doyoga.com , Gabriel Azoulay creator of Bikyasa , www.bikyasayoga.wordpress.com Lorin Roche & Camille Maurine authors of Radiance Sutras and Meditation Secrets for women www.lorinroche.com . I am also trained in 12 step recovery yoga, a program created by Nikki Myers which helps people with addiction issues. www.y12sr.com , Finally I have been trained to teach Kids Yoga by Youth Yoga School here in Evansville and have been enjoying teaching yoga to 1st graders at Sharon Elementary school for over 2 years. I am a retired counselor . I have found my counseling background has been complimentary to teaching yoga. I also have been trained in Reiki and am a level three Healing touch practitioner. Yoga is not only what I do and teaching it is my passion!
