WED – 9:15am Gentle Yoga
I began my yoga journey over 10 years ago, first practicing and training with Michael Johnson of the Clearlight Yoga Shala and eventually becoming a certified 200- and 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. I am also a certified YogaEd teacher. I have taught Yoga for Kids, Adults, Pre-Natal, and Chair Yoga in Michigan, Florida and Texas.
After having taught many levels of yoga through the years, I feel I am at my best when teaching the fundamentals of yoga with a gentle, thought-provoking style, providing a welcoming atmosphere where students feel supported and encouraged to grow physically, mentally, and spiritually at their own pace. Through this style, students can take this growth with them off the mat and into the world.
Having lived in McKinney for three years, I have discovered what an awesome, friendly community we have. I have become a “Collin County Master Gardener.” I also enjoy golfing, pottery, and practicing yoga. I was a Montessori preschool teacher in Michigan for more than 20 years. I have been married for 34 years and have two adult children, a dog and a cat.
