With a master’s degree in psychology, I was a counselor for many years before yoga ruined that career. (Really, I just traded in a couch for a mat). Based out of Washington, DC – and soon Bozeman, MT – I’ve been leading classes and workshops now for over a decade.
In other words – I’m old!
Sure, I’ve practiced various styles of yoga, but it’s within the traditional method of Ashtanga where I’ve finally made my home. I guess that makes me a bit of a latecomer to the world of Ashtanga – but thanks to the guiding influence of my teacher, David Garrigues, as well as a caring network of supportive teachers (mostly Davids, as well), I’m certainly making up for lost time!
You’ll find me most Sundays, leading mysore at Flow Yoga Center or teaching Asana Clinics and Ashtanga Intensives just about anywhere I’m invited. But mostly you’ll find me on my mat, practicing!
Other than that, I’m a loving, yet overbearing mom and a wife, who still can’t make a pot of coffee to her husband’s liking. I also work as a copywriter for various national non-profits and have been featured in online and print publications such as Yoga Journal, Elephant Journal and Love Yoga Anatomy.
Coming soon, I’ll even crown myself editor-in-chief of Ashtanga Dispatch, a collaborative magazine designed for beginners to the Ashtanga practice. Look for the magazine to be available in October.
