It is my privilege to have shared yoga teachings with students in the Richmond, Virginia area since 2005. I combine my interests in nature, art, and meditation in yoga classes that promote each student's personal path toward self-inquiry, vitality, peace-of-mind, and health. I love making yoga accessible to all people.
