“My first year of college, someone had one of those little books you get in the grocery store check-out lines. Yoga. Fascinated, I took the book, rallied the hall women and we all gathered to do yoga. That was 1968. Since then, Yoga has always been a part of my life, and, I think, also the desire to gather others to share in the experience and learn. My first home practice was inspired by Jess Stern’s Yoga Youth and Reincarnation. I never really took a class until I discovered TriYoga at a Sisterhood weekend and I was hooked. My solitary practice suddenly expanded into a meaningful practice of breath, asana, and kriya flow. I retired from a professional life of teaching software apps, English as a Second Language, and Spanish, into my encore career of sharing the experience of yoga with the people I meet.”
