Licensed Skin Care Therapist, State of Florida
I am a Certified Yoga Therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists and accredited through Yoga Alliance as an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher with 500 Hours of formal Yoga Training and well over 4,000 hours of yoga instruction. Additionally, I am a certified Yoga instructor for Seniors from Duke Integrative Medicine as well as certified to instruct Stand Up Paddle-board Yoga. I instruct all styles of yoga for all populations.
I took my first yoga class in 2002 while living in Cambridge, Massachusetts as a way to stop smoking cigarettes. From that first yoga class, I never smoked or had the desire to smoke again. I later studied and became a yoga instructor in 2010.
I am also licensed Skin Care Therapist in The Great State of Florida.
As the first in my family with a college degree, I hold a Bachelors of Science Degree in Human Development and Psychology, in addition to an Associate of Arts Degree with a World Studies Certificate.
