I am a person in recovery and yoga teacher. I teach people in recovery in various venues - from jails to studios. I present workshops on various subjects relating to yoga and recovery, lead teacher certification courses with Kent Bond, 500 ERTY, and work closely with Nikki Myers, 500 ERYT and the Yoga of 12 Step Recovery training's and classes. I play with clay, have a great family life and stay close to my recovery principles. I used to work in accounting, most recently in industry, and I was able to bring my yoga and recovery to my daily life there as well.
