I am a 2002 graduate of Moksha’s Teacher Training Program. I completed David Swenson’s Primary Series Teacher Training and his Second Series Intensive. I am also certified through Forrest Method Advanced Teacher Training, and have worked with a number of senior teachers including Duncan Wong, Andre Lappe, Tim Miller and others. I hold a Nidan black belt in Shotodan karate, and teach cycling, advanced sports training, stability and BOSU balls, and am a certified Personal Trainer specializing in rehabilitating athletes from sports related injuries. I am a Certified Child Exercise Specialist, and hold certifications in stability ball training, BOSU, sports training, kick boxing and mat pilates. I teach the Yoga for Athletes class at Niyama, and also lead yoga classes throughout the North Shore.
In late September 2010, I summited Mt. Kilimanjaro with two students from Yoga for Athletes. I credit the discipline of yoga with giving me the patience and stamina to overcome fatigue and altitude sickness, as well as the opportunity to make lifetime friends.
