My journey with yoga started over 10 years ago. I was fortunate to have trained with Linda Makowski, E-RYT, and other inspiring teachers for several years. Through my introduction to yoga I attended many workshops including Anusara with Desiree Rumbaugh, Matthew Sanford, Patricia Walden, Cyndi Lee, Jason Crandell, Shamanasana and Chakra workshops with Nancy McCaochan, Yoga Camp, Inward Bound Yoga in Brooklyn, MI and YAGD Yoga Day in Troy. I focus my classes on Hatha Yoga and have been told my classes lean towards a gentle, but challenging view of practice. I emphasize a non-judgmental teaching style with a focus on alignment and enhancements to classic yoga postures to lead the student toward his or her edge. Outside of teaching yoga, I am lawyer and partner in a small law firm in Birmingham, MI, with a practice concentration representing providers of residential care programs for persons with disabilities.
