A Senior Iyengar Teacher, Yoga Therapist and Yoga for Scoliosis specialist I hold a BA in Psychology from UCLA and an MS in Education from USC. My yoga journey began in 1992 while touring around India on a motorcycle exploring sacred sites, reading ancient texts and talking to spiritual seekers.
My Yoga Journey
Serving for two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer deepened my desire to bring about meaningful positive change in the world. Returning home in 1994, I took a teaching position with LAUSD and developed the first yoga program for credit. While there I taught yoga daily, as well as psychology, health and English to at-risk inner city teens until 2008. From 2002 until 2010 I was blessed with the opportunity to study therapeutically under the direct guidance of BKS Iyengar in India. At this time I also attended classes with his daughter Geeta who, like her father, gave instructions on correct alignment and taught pranayama and philosophy. In 2006 I began teaching at IYILA and in 2008 started teaching at Yoga Works as well.
