I love yoga - how it feels in my body, my breath, my outlook. I love teaching and seeing students discover how simple movements can have big impacts.
I created MY YOGA Series as a way of getting people in touch with basic anatomy, the uniqueness of their own, and ways to optimize yoga for their individual needs and wants.
I have offered workshops in my area as well as presentations to various groups including Sno-Isle Library in-service; UW P-3 Executive Leadership Institute; and staff of Cascade Valley Hospital in Arlington. I've been thrilled to teach at the National Association of Nutrition Professionals' past four national conferences.
I was recently asked to start a yoga for Parkinson's Disease class in the area, and am thrilled to be a part of this community. I am also currently putting the finishing touches on my Level 2 Restorative yoga certification report.
I LOVE learning, and continue to hone my yoga skills and deepen my understanding with teachers like Judith Hanson Lasater, Gary Kraftsow, Rod Stryker, Shari Friedrichsen, & Tias Little.
I offer private and semi-private (up to 3 people) yoga instruction at The Stillaguamish Athletic Club in Smokey Point. Some people come to learn some basics before trying out a group class. Some are looking for help with specific anatomy-related issues. Some are looking to learn and master a few new skills. Regardless of the reason, one-on-one yoga continues to be one of the most fulfilling things in my professional life.
$55 an hour. Six 1-hour sessions for $295.

Restorative Yoga + Sound Bath: New dates TBD Events page for details!
Restorative yoga is for everyone regardless of mobility, strength, or temperament : ) This class uses props extensively to support you in a deep, passive stretch. Poses are held between 2 - 20 minutes to allow release of stress and tension with minimal effort and maximum comfort. Sound bath is the playing of crystal or brass singing bowls in such a way as to facilitate a meditative space. It's easier to experience than describe! Come try it!
