About Me

I have been teaching Iyengar yoga for over thirty years and currently supervise a weekly therapeutics course at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Los Angeles. I co-developed the teacher training program for YogaWorks and worked collaboratively with the teaching staff to improve all facets of the training. I have authored two books on my parallel passion, nutrition. The Anti-Aging Plan and the Longevity Diet.

My approach to Yoga

Our most precious wealth is health. By cultivating a relationship with the body, understanding alignment, stability, mobility, and an integration with the breath, we build the foundation for self-care. Stress reduction is essential for maintaining physical and mental equilibrium throughout life. These tools: alignment in postures, when to support the body and when to build stamina, when to rest and when to seek guidance are all a part of my work.

The Yoga I teach is
Therapeutic / Individual
Adaptive / Accessible
Alignment Oriented
