Having enjoyed the many benefits of a yoga practice personally and the desire to share those rewards with others is the reason I because a yoga instructor. I have been teaching yoga in the Cape Girardeau area since 2009 and a 200 hour RYT from YogaFit. I am also certified in YogaWall through Bryan Legere. I recently completed the 1000 teacher hours requirement for yoga alliance experienced yoga teacher designation.
My continuing education is in yoga therapy in order to better help those suffering with depression and dealing with trauma. I encourage my students to listen to their bodies and to use their breath to bring mindfulness and awareness to their mind and body both on and off the mat. So much of what we learn in class can be transferred to our everyday hectic lives. There is a saying I learned awhile back that I find to be very profound and that is “If we listen to our body when it whispers, we may not have to hear it scream.”

My view of health and wellness. Yoga works with the entire person, mind, body and spirit and creates a deep since of integrated wholeness. Yoga has been an ongoing practice and integral part of my lifestyle for the past twenty years. I continue to be an active student as well as teacher and love exploring the journey within and the healing wisdom of the body.
I completed both my 200 hour and 500 hour professional level yoga teacher training at The Kripalu Center for Yoga. Kripalu Yoga emphasis is on self discovery, personal inquiry , and connecting mind, body and heart through the practice of yoga. It is often described as a “meditation in motion”. Other yoga influences and teachers include Eric Schiffman and Saul David Raye. I also have certifications in both Restorative Yoga and Yoga Wall and Thai Yoga Massage Therapy.
It’s my privilege to serve as program director for Yoga East Healing Arts Registered Yoga School here in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. My intention is to offer the teachings of yoga as a wholistic integrative practice that develops a healthy and strong body, an open and caring heart, and a peaceful and focused mind.
