I have always been curious about the body/mind/soul connection and how it works. I started dancing when I was 4 and loved doing just about anything that involved physical activity all through my youth. In my late twenties, while pursuing a career in dance and performance, I began experiencing pain in my body and fatigue in my energy levels. I forced myself to stop dancing and training, thinking it would help me heal. I moved out of New York City to another country and still felt the worst I had ever felt in my life. A friend asked if doing yoga counted as dancing or training and suggested Iyengar yoga.
My love of Iyengar Yoga began. My body began to heal and a few months later I found myself immersed in an Iyengar Yoga Teacher Training in Brighton, England. Eventually I moved to San Francisco to complete my training, finishing in 1997 from the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco. Here I found my home. I continue to be awed by the practice and teachings of Guruji and Geetaji and now Abhijata and the multitude of Senior Iyengar teachers world wide.
My yoga asana is balanced with philosophical studies from the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali. I am truly blessed to have found Kate Holcombe who received her teachings from TKV Desikachar. Kate teaches the importance and relevance of yoga in our everyday lives and not just on the mat. My study continues to be nourished by Mantra Sadhana with Gitte Bechsgaard. Now begins the yoga philosophy practice that informs relationships with ourselves, work, families, which I link back to my yoga practice and teachings.
