I began practicing several years ago while teaching elementary school.  After 30 years of teaching, I retired in 2008 and began my 230-hour teacher training through Asheville Yoga Center.  I began teaching yoga shortly thereafter and recently finished my 500-hour Yoga Alliance teacher training with Asheville Yoga Center.

Seeing the benefits of yoga both physically and mentally to all ages, I enjoys teaching a variety of classes to all levels of students.  I incorporate breath work, body awareness, and mindfulness into each of my classes.  My passion is yoga, and to help spread the practice to areas of our region that may not otherwise get to experience the benefits of this amazing practice.  That is why I love leading the Washington Alternative School Pilot Yoga in the Schools Project, and I’m so excited to be a part of Yoga for Parkinsons.  Private yoga instruction is also available with Beth.

Teaching yoga has been so rewarding and fulfilling to me.  Watching my students progress and grow; seeing their peacefulness and inner beauty at the end of each class makes my job complete.
