What is your favorite yoga quote? 

“Yoga teaches us to cure what can’t be endured and to endure what cannot be cured.”~ BKS Iyengar


What do you do when you are not teaching yoga? 

When not practicing yoga, working my full-time gig at Jewel (since 1985), or spending time with my boyfriend (Mike) and kids, You can find me indulging in reality TV, eating Mexican food or sushi, making plans to travel MORE or sleeping.





What is your favorite pose?

Malasana everyday! No matter what, I do malasana (yogi squat) DAILY. So many benefits: increase circulation to the hips and pelvis region. Stretches, thighs, groin, ankles and tones core. Great for digestion and elimination.You can find me doing this in almost every class I teach, in the kitchen, at work or just randomly out and about.

Savasana (corpse pose) is a favorite too. Because this is where we let the hard work from our practice settle in and provide the most benefits. This is where I can create space for rest and silence.

I’ve taught at various studios in the western suburbs: vinyasa, yin, family yoga, kid yoga, partner yoga, couples yoga. I’ve also taught at retreats and at workshops. Most recently, I’ve taught people from all walks of life at Goat Yoga. It was great to see people who came for the goats, but stayed and engaged in the practice of yoga and some have even continued on their yoga journey.
