Received certifications from the Yoga Institute of Houston(2002) and Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health(2003)in Lenox, Mass. I am registered with Yoga Alliance. I have studied with Cyndi Lee of Om Yoga, taking both her yoga teacher training(Kripalu) and level 1 Om Meditation Training.(Kaia Yoga,Westport). I also studied Yin Yoga with Sarah Powers.

I have blended the various trainings I have into my Vinyasa Flow class. I always begin with a warm up and cool down, as taught by Kripalu, while in between moving through a more vigorous flow, favored by Om Yoga.
