Favorite inspirational quote: Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift. That is why it is called the PRESENT. I don't remember who said this.


When/where/with who was your first yoga class? I first tried yoga when I was in college. Marquette offered Hatha Yoga classes at the Recreational Center.


What / who inspires you? Nature, with its beauty, power and resilience and little acts of kindness.


What I love most about yoga is: that it makes me strong and flexible both physically and mentally. I love the way it gets me out of my head to a peaceful place.


What you can’t live without? My friends and family


What you might not know about me: I was on a swim team in Hawaii when I was younger.


Best advice you’ve ever received (from who?): "Do the best you can in all things" My father never really said this to me, but everything he did exemplified this philosophy.

An entry level class geared toward beginner’s -still a flow class, but more demonstration if needed. emphasis on alignment, breath and the foundational tools of a yoga practice. There is no heat added to these classes and students are encouraged to rest more.
