For over 20 years I was a member of a local health club where I lifted weights and was a fan of cardio. I knew at the time I wanted something different and more beneficial. I have always been intrigued by the motion of yoga but did know its endless benefits. January 1st, 2009 was my first yoga practice. This mind/body discipline has awakened my inner vision through the third eye chakra of intuition and imagination. From the past into the present I have been inspired from the range of knowledge I have achieved from self-study and the training from Yama Yoga in Milwaukee, WI. My ongoing study of the body and yoga continues to illuminate the importance of my practice. I enjoy teaching and practicing meditation along with my gardening skills to discover inner peace. On my enlightened path I have learned various techniques in Hatha, Anusara and Ashtanga. My classes combine vinyasa - flowing, pranayama - breathing, vidya - knowledge, and dhyana - meditation. Combining all of these can help balance your mind, body and spirit leading you to a state of peacefulness.
