Yoga

My classes are designed to stretch, strengthen and relax the body, and soothe, focus and balance the mind and heart, while using large dollops of humor and inspiration. All are welcome. See calendar for locations and schedule.

Meditation: "This being human is a guest house. / Every morning a new arrival." Rumi​


Yoga has always been more than simple exercise to me: the calming effects on the mind intrigue me. Yoga naturally led to an interest in meditation, which eventually led to annual ten day silent retreats. I've attended workshops all over the L.A. area with luminaries such as Thich Nhat Hanh, Amma the Hugging Saint, Jack Kornfield, and Sharon Salzberg. The psycho-spiritual search continues with Voice Dialogue, Family Constellation, art and SoulCollage®, and small (mostly Buddhist) meditation groups. Always, yoga is the constant: so many teachers over the years offering their different styles: physically challenging classes, fun classes, restorative classes, classes heavy on ritual and chanting and breath work.

When I turned 60, I took the plunge and completed Yoga World’s 200 hour teacher training with Gabriel Hall. I continue to find my own voice. I incorporate the teachings of many of those early teachers who so inspired me, but my preferred style is gentle yoga, with an emphasis on awareness of the body, breath and mind, closing with a guided meditation or visualization or really good poem.

I'm delighted to have found what I want to be at long last.
