Individual Instruction for Chronic Health Conditions

My teaching has been inspired by my life in the TMC community, in contact with Swamiji’s commitment to and astonishing skill at transforming challenges into opportunities for profound growth. I've been fortunate (and challenged!) to have plenty of chances to apply what I've learned in my own life.

My diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis in 1999 coincided almost exactly with my arrival in Portland from Boston and my entry into yoga teacher training. My teaching has evolved out of this physical condition with its progressive disability, and the inner and outer obstacles it’s presented.

I enjoy most of all seeing students have amazing experiences with yoga, moving and shifting things that have been stuck and even impenetrable for many years. I’m looking forward to working with you.
