Yoga has been part of my life since my yoga first class in 1969 (I was practically a baby!) During my twenties, yoga postures, breath and relaxation techniques supported my body before and after long bicycle rides and runs, including training and running my first, and only marathon. During my two pregnancies, yoga helped me stay balanced and fit. After the loss of my father from a sudden heart attack, yoga helped me to reduce stress, anxiety and depression.
Since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1997, I know that the practices and philosophy of yoga have helped to keep me healthy and nearly symptom free for over a dozen years. When I was diagnosed and treated for cancer in 2012, it was yoga that helped keep me sane. My business, Yoga Heals Us LLC, reflects my enthusiasm that yoga heals us - on all levels of our being - body, mind, and spirit.
A lifelong student of yoga, I have advanced certifications from Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health and Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT) as well as Yoga of the Heart, Yoga for the Special Child, and Trauma Informed Yoga Therapy(TIYT).
