How did you find your way to yoga? I was living in Colorado when a friend shared that yoga had improved her downhill skiing. I started attending classes at a local recreation center to stretch, strengthen and build endurance so I could spend more time on the ski mountain. It was a few years later, during an [...]

How did you find your way to yoga and then to teaching? When 17 years of competitive swimming came to an end, I needed something to replace my workouts (and my swimmer shoulders).  I had no yoga mat, no stretchy pants, and no clue what I was getting into. The first few times on a [...]

1. How did you find your way to yoga? After I graduated from college I moved to Taos, NM. Everyone in Taos was into an alternative lifestyle. It seemed only natural that I should discover yoga in Taos—a pretty heavy place energetically and spiritually. After my first class, I immediately bought Donna Farhi's book Yoga Mind, [...]

1. How did you find your way to yoga?
