I offer to you my life’s work: Iyengar Yoga, Conscious Grieving® and Stilting and Costuming. This uniquely creative blend of yoga, grief support and stilt walking may seem like an unlikely combination, yet all provide opportunities to weave together body awareness, mental clarity and spiritual growth as means of gaining insights into new ways of navigating life’s complexly rich and wondrous path.

Embracing an inventive approach to living, my aim is to use conscious embodiment as a vehicle to ascend to higher levels of physical, mental and spiritual well being through the following three pursuits.


~Drawing from time spent working directly with BKS Iyengar, as well as a dedicated yoga practice since 1992 I gratefully impart to you the profoundly positive transformational power of classic yoga poses based on correct alignment and intelligent sequencing.

~Conscious Grieving, derived from my own life experience, offers a consciousness-based approach to processing grief and loss, which emphasizes yoga and other embodiment practices.

~Creativity, giving rise to form as it so uniquely does with stilting and costuming, provides another path to ascending higher, both figuratively and literally!

Join me on this unique upward journey toward finding the highest vibration of your true self at all levels of being.
