I've been teaching yoga full time in Charlotte since 2001. I founded the Yoga Oasis where I taught Hot Yoga, Traditional Hatha Yoga from the Ghosh lineage, Vinyasa Flow, and Yin Yoga for the Joints.
After years of teaching Hot Yoga and Vinyasa Flow yoga classes I felt like the walking wounded. I had multiple joint injuries, in a few sessions of Yin Yoga at a training with Sara Powers the pain I was experiencing in my joints was gone. That really got my attention! Curious about the origins of Yin Yoga I studied with Pauley Zink( the Yoga Master who brought Taoist Yoga, Yin yoga to the US) and I completed a two year training in Qi Meridian Therapy at the Tao of Healing Center in NYC founded Dr. Nan Lu.( Yin Yoga originated in the Taoist, ancient Chinese Healing traditions) I participated and completed multiple Qigong trainings under the guidance of Dr. Lu and his instructors.
I am Yoga Alliance certified 200 hour
E-RYT as well as a YACEP( Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider) I hold a Bachelors Degree in Communications from UNC-G. I received certifications from the American College of Sports Medicine in Health Fitness, Bikram Method 500 Hours Hot Yoga Teacher Training ( I taught Hot Yoga for 16 years) and Vinyasa Flow Yoga. I have led multiple 200 hour Yoga Alliance Teaching Trainings as well as Yin Yoga Immersion weekend trainings.
I currently offer Online Yin Yoga for the Joints, Traditional Hatha Yoga Ghosh Lineage, Bikram Method Sequence, & Qigong in Boutique style online yoga classes in the Virtual Yoga Studio. The furry fellas in the photo are Bear & Brody( Big Boy Poms) they like to fold & play on my yoga mat after the online sessions.
I look forward to connecting with you on the mat~
