"The ultimate aim of yoga is to live joyfully and fearlessly. A master teacher embodies this promise and is an inspirational force capable of empowering others to do the same."

I began practicing hatha yoga in 1996… and was hooked from the first class. Mindful movement, breath awareness and an overall renewed sense of well-being are what kept me practicing, plus, let’s face it, at no other time in my life had I felt more rested and peaceful than in Savasana at the end of each class.
