My background is in athletics, physical theater, eastern wellness, traditional rock climbing, movement and sitting meditation. I trained in raja yoga from monastics. I continue studies of the buddhadhamma with lay people in sangha. My tao is a multidisciplinary mix. My classes are for all kinds of people. l will meet you where you are! 

There is no ‘right’ way to ‘do’ yoga, there are many ways. Mostly, it’s about your being. This includes awareness, behavior, relations and ways to live. I say, look into all the different practices that are available. Through your direct experience your insight and understanding will sharpen. I encourage you to be curious and discerning along your path of self-realization. Focus on the teachings, not the teacher.

I created the Multidisciplinary Yoga Training from my experiences of learning and working with various cultures and communities. I share yoga and meditation with all people, many with unique conditions.

Past Life

I’ve felled a few trees in my time. Dangerously fun, yet taxing on the ol’ bod.
This was Xmas Day of 2015. It was 69 degrees fahrenheit. #climatechange
