After being a yoga student for 20 years, in 2004 I completed the nationally-recognized Integrative Yoga Therapy teacher training. I’m an insured instructor registered with the Yoga Alliance and have an M.A. in communications from the University of Minnesota. I am also a communications consultant and workshop facilitator specializing in women’s topics, journaling and dream work. I’m an avid hiker and biker and in 1996 climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. In the summer of 2012 I walked 100km of the lovely Camino de Santiago in Spain. I’ve had asthma and allergies since childhood and use yoga to help manage both.

what CoreYoga members are saying

Well dear one, I was doing last weeks class! I want to say that it was surely the best class I have ever attended... Your presentation style is always good, but that was over the top, and your words of calm and comfort is just what we all need.
