My love connection to health and wellness started on the St. Kate’s campus in the late 80’s when I studied to receive a degree in Nutrition and Exercise Science. I was part of the 80’s aerobics revolution in fitness as a leg-warmer clad teacher! Through the next 22 years of raising my family of 5 kids (and cast of pets) with my husband in St. Paul, I continued to be a seeker in the pursuit of wellness. After a decade of practicing various disciplines of yoga, I studied at the Yoga Center, Mpls in 2010 for my teacher training and also certified to teach pre and post natal yoga, complementing my practice as a certified Birth Doula (DONA). I have also studied Qigong – a Chinese healing art – with Master Chunyi Lin and master teacher, Bonnie Blanchette.
I am ever grateful to the teachers in my life who have brought me along – most notably my children and my dogues (silent examples of grateful and contented living), and of course all that have lit my path with knowledge to share with my students.
I am humbled to be part of the worldwide and local yoga community. It is a universal language speaking and practicing life lived in balance, yielding santosa; Sanskrit for contentment: the ultimate human experience. I am grateful to teach under the roof of Tula/balance…where we all can seek it together.
