Each day we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.
What led you to yoga?
An athlete, I was drawn to the physical aspects of yoga: strengthening and stretching. During my teacher training, however, I became intrigued and involved in the other facets of yoga.

Your definition of yoga...
I see it as an integration of mind and body; of incorporating breath with each asana in a flow; of having the ability to ignore outside stimuli and to focus on your practice only
The best trip you’ve ever experienced...
My son’s college search trip
How do you begin each day?
Each morning, I like to work out or to practice yoga.
A bit more...
You might notice my “teacher voice” in my classes. After thirty years of teaching for Walker County, I’m now retired. My students now come to learn yoga instead of math and history. On this new path in my life, I actually get to enjoy my morning coffee, eat lunch without children, hang out at my beach condo, visit my children, and have more time for my passion: tennis. After receiving my 230-hour RYT certificate from Stephanie Keach, I began my current pursuit of a 500-hour certification. Yoga has given me such connections to the new friends who supported me during my year-long teacher training, and I’m looking forward to making more of those connections at Yoga East.
