Author of Plus One: Finding God on the Yoga Mat

Three words that describe me are friendly, reflective and nosy (Should I say: curious?)

My perfect meal is healthy and prepared with love by someone else

Coffee or tea? Tea and a sip of coffee. Or two. Or three. Ok, I drink coffee now

Other than Asha, you might see me around Sacramento at Trader Joes, Mochi Yogurt, a playground, a Thai restaurant, a coffee shop

I highly recommend forgiveness and time in silence

I am thankful for a lot. For starters: When my daughter climbs into my bed before the sunrise and goes back to sleep

I hope for success and peace

I love dark chocolate with coarse chunks of sea salt, being near the ocean, and laying in a hammock

I’m scared of not being good enough

Yoga has taught me a new understanding of God and therefore a sacred appreciation of my life

I am inspired by the dedication of so many yoga students. Also by the kindness and generosity of others

Three words to describe my teaching style are detailed, fluid and inward (But it does depend on the day!)

One of my favorite yoga books is Light on Life by BKS Iyengar

Music you might hear in my class Krishna Das, Girish, and Deva Primal chanting. Ziggy Marley and other reggae, Eddie Vedder, Sting, Dispatch, Counting Crows, Cowboy Junkies, plus classical or instrumental guitar or drumming. Lately, a lot of silence

My Yoga experience includes meditation, pranayama, self inquiry practice, being married, having a child…being human. About fifteen years of yoga practice, over ten years of teaching and now a teacher training course; I’m a teacher of teachers. Practice and/or trainings in various styles/traditions: Bikram, Ashtanga, Anusara, Iyengar, Yin/Yang Yoga, Restorative, Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Forrest, Psychology of Yoga, Tantric Yoga Philosophy…. You can study and do a lot of yoga in fifteen years!
