Gentle Somatic Yoga Certifications:
Practitioner ~ Level 1 and 2, Teacher ~ Level 3
In 2003, I opened Out Back Yoga with the intention to serve the gently aging population as well as those who have been injured, are anxious, or are perhaps dealing with long/short term illness. Now having taught for 20 years, I am among that gently aging population. My cumulative training has given me time honored wisdom and my life experiences have informed me in a way that I feel fully qualified to serve others in a compassionate way.
The heart of my teaching suggests that you value your personal, long-term story by exploring an integrated yoga movement practice beginning from exactly where you are: without criticism or judgment, while choosing to engage in the adventure with an open mind.
I’m a Gentle Somatic Yoga ® Practitioner and also: Equilibrium Hatha Yoga Teacher (250 hour) Viniyoga Teacher (500 hour), Yoga Therapist, Ayurvedic Health Practitioner, Yoga of Recovery Counselor, GSY – Level 2, Medicine Dance facilitator in-training with special completed trainings in Fascia Trains with Tom Myers and Essential Back Care Facilitator with Robin Rothenberg, and others.
I am infused and informed by the wisdom of my inspired teachers, I am always exploring new and creative ways to incorporate these teachings into my classes, private sessions and workshops. I also enjoy sharing with groups outside of Out Back Yoga such as the weSPARK Cancer Support Center in Sherman Oaks and Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACA) 12-Step conventions.
I look forward to meeting you Out Back!
