“I love to teach yoga. I feel that I have been doing it all my life.  Ever since I was a little girl, I felt I had a gift of an inner knowing that I couldn’t put into words.  I could feel other people’s feelings and energy  just from their body language. When I started teaching yoga about 15 years ago, I would hear from my students that I always said the right things at the right time in class.  From over 20 years studying with many Yoga teachers and some master teachers  I  feel that I can really help more people with the knowledge and experience that I have acquired.   The knowledge of yoga that has been passed down has been so enriching and awakening. I am so blessed to be able to teach at Omjoyful Yoga and I hope that you come and join me. It will leave you feeling nourished, inspired and awakened.”
