MY JOURNEY YINWARD
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 have led multiple 200 hour Yoga Alliance Teaching Trainings as well as Yin Yoga Immersion weekend trainings.
