Yoga and Postural Alignment
Articles
I specialize in therapeutic, gentle, restorative yoga for older adults, cancer and heart disease patients but also teach classes for the general public and work with individuals. I have a level I and II certification from the Egoscue University, specializing in relieving pain by restoring proper posture. I incorporate postural alignment concepts, stress management, somatics and meditation in my yoga classes and work with individuals.
Bio
I have administered non-profit health and wellness programs for older adults, cancer and heart disease patients for over thirty years and am knowledgeable in prevention and disease management. I have taught yoga for 15 years, receiving certification from Integrative Yoga Therapy in 1995. I have practiced as a postural alignment specialist for three years, having completed level I and II certification from the Egoscue University. I facilitated yoga-based stress management for the Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease. I have taken several advanced Integrative Yoga Therapy workshops, as well as workshops in Body-Mind-Centering, somatics, Healing Touch and the Psoas. I teach workshops on a variety of topics, including Chakras, psoas release, stress management, and spirit in nature.
