I first studied yoga after I graduated from college. I was drawn to the profound effect it had on my body and mind. Although I never forgot about it, I wandered away from the practice. I returned to the mat nearly four decades later. I was inspired to share with others the deeper insights I was now given by way of my teachers and through my own studies. On the cusp of retiring from a career in Special Education, I applied to and was accepted into the 200 hour teacher training program at the Samadhi Studio in Manchester. Since then I have received a certification in Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga, and have attended other workshops to increase my knowledge in meditation, pain management, anatomy, Mindfulness Based Stress Training, and Yin Yoga. I am grateful for each opportunity to learn, to grow, and to share my deep appreciation for yoga with others.
