Teachers & Inspirations

These are my teachers and folks I have trained with in various ways over the years,  with no hierarchy implied.  In my early practice I sought out 'the tradition' in ashtanga and iyengar yoga, as well as Ayurveda.  I was also coming to yoga with a background in psychology/counseling/social justice and training as an anthropologist: that led directly to seeking out the neuroscience of trauma, resilience, and recovery.  As my practice and understanding evolved, I was drawn to somatic and breath work.  Leslie Kaminoff found me and holds me steady.  The confluence of Buddhism and Yoga, the history of the yoga tradition, and sanskrit study rounds up my yoga training to date.
