--Lisa G

Yoga...helped me to recover
from chronic pain and fatigue...it keeps my body limber and

--Carol W

It keeps me in the moment, focused and grounded.

--Kim B

"Teaching gives me the opportunity to instill the
motivation to understand asana rather than "perfect"
it, transforming "exercise" into adventure."


Teaching Yoga is a very rewarding experience as it helps me to maintain balance during ups and downs of life.

--Jogi B

I teach yoga to assist in creating health in the body and steadiness of the mind.

-- Caroline M

I get to:

1. Be barefoot all day.
2. Pretend I'm a disc jockey.
3. See lots of cool tattoos.
4. Meet nice people.
5. Say "Triang Mukha Eka Pada Paschimottanasana" without anyone laughing.
--Keith K

I teach to share, cultivate, and promote peace, health, and serenity. And to smile, laugh and learn every day!

-- Mary Esther
