Why do I love what I do?

You know that feeling when time stands still, you are focused, every challenge seems possible, and when you know you are on the right path?  That is exactly how I feel about teaching & designing programs (training, workshops & continuing ed programs).

In classes, I enjoy connecting students to their present experience and sharing the tools of yoga & qigong to proactively care for the body, mind & spirit.

In my training design services, my biggest joy is successfully helping yoga teachers & studios offer inspiring programs through a solid learning foundation.  I have done my job well when students & faculty can focus on the actual learning experience; the reason why they are all there.

What skills do I have to make your dreams possible?
