“Anyone can practice. Young man can practice. Old man can practice. Very old man can practice. Man who is sick, he can practice. Man who doesn’t have strength can practice. Except lazy people; lazy people can’t practice ashtanga yoga.” -Sri. K. Pattabhi  Jois.


 I have been teaching Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga since 1997.  I completed Tim Miller’s first Teacher Training in 2000. Tim has been my teacher for 20 years. I also practiced with Jorgen Christansson for three years in Santa Monica, where I met my husband in class!  I was fortunate to practice with Pattabhi Jois in 2002 in Kauai. 

I’m a meditation practitioner and devotee of Paramahansa Yogananda, Founder of the Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF). His teachings, along with yoga, have changed my life for the better on every level.  I encourage you to watch the movie, AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda on Amazon Prime and to subscribe to the SRF lessons he wrote: https://yogananda.org/lessons.

I was a yoga studio owner in Kansas City, MO for 16 years and founded Maya Yoga studio and co-founded the Yoga Gallery. 

I’ve traveled to India twice. The first time to Goa to practice Ashtanga with Rolf and Marci Naujokat and the second time with Yoga Gives Back.  I am an Ambassador with Yoga Gives Back, which provides micro-loans and educational funding to the beautiful women and children of India. For the price of one yoga class, you can change a life:  http://www.yogagivesback.org.
