This page will give you my history. So that you know, I didn’t learn from a book, or a weekend seminar. I studied for years, with dedication to my teachers. I am still studying, that, never ends.
This page is also a place for me to honor all my teachers, past, present, and future. I am eternally grateful for their love and compassion, their desire to be of service and their dedication to passing on the art & science of Yoga. I bow to them all, Namaste’
