“Karma” introduced me to yoga or perhaps it was yoga to me.  While sitting at a café in 2012 with my wife, we were talking about ways to help reduce my stress brought on by the daily demands of the corporate world.  As I glanced over my shoulder I saw a sign advertising a yoga basics class starting later in the week.  I signed up immediately and never looked back as I found my life changing into something bigger and deeper than I had ever imagined. I went on to deepen my practice thru reading and by attending workshops and regular classes.  Looking for even more and as a way to spread my knowledge and new found love of yoga with others, I became certified to teach in 2016 by graduating from a 200-hour Integrated Vinyasa teacher training and immediately was hired as a teacher.  I furthered my teacher trainings over the years receiving certifications in Chair Yoga, Senior Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Gentle Low-Back Care Yoga, and Wheelchair Yoga. I have been teaching to all age groups since I retired from the corporate world and have the honor of meeting so many new friends as I share my passion of yoga with them. My journey continues with my personal belief that “we get to ourselves thru ourselves”.  Join me on the mat or in the chair wherever you may be on your yoga journey to share in the discovery of your breath, mind and body in a fun and light-hearted way.
