RYT 200

I have been a student of yoga for many years.  I have always been interested in the philosophical and meditative aspects of yoga, as well as the physical benefits.  After retiring from my work as a physician in 2014, I wondered what could I do for my community.  I have personally gained so much from yoga, that I wanted to share it.  I signed up for the Richmond Beach Yoga teacher training, graduating in April of 2015.  The program provided me with a good understanding of the various schools of yoga practice, the history and ancient writings and the skills needed for teaching.  We did an extensive study of musculoskeletal anatomy and used that information to learn to teach yoga poses safely and effectively.   I would like to give credit and thanks to Jennifer Cabañero, my first “real” yoga teacher, Donna Farhi, her mentor, and my RBY teachers Angeline Johnston and Dylan Noebles for their generosity, knowledge and commitment.   Off the mat, I enjoy riding horses, playing the flute and the bass guitar and spending time with my husband and 2 goofy standard poodles.
