A physical yoga asana practice has been central to my life since 1994. The first yoga pose I ever did was Warrior II, pointed out to me by a clerk in a health food store in Denver, CO. At the time, I was looking for something to tame my “feral” ways — lots of partying, moves, job changes, etc. Yoga has stuck w/ me over the years and through my travels, a touchstone. I moved to Salem in 2002 and immediately put down roots after meeting my husband, Dino. My yoga practice has continued to deepen, taking on more thoughtful, gentle qualities beyond a high-energy, tapas-creating workout (although that is my first love). My first taste of teaching began w/ the Cherry City Derby Girls in 2009. The path as an instructor continues to open up, including participation w/ Living Yoga, where I am one of several instructors teaching yoga at Oregon State Prison. I feel at home at Indigo and am overjoyed to be part of the team. See you on the mat.
