A Little Background...

My first yoga class was in 1998.   Before yoga, getting out of bed was physically challenging.  My hips were a mess. After practicing yoga for some time, I noticed my body was more flexible and stronger and my hips started loosening up.  After working in the public sector for 27 years, I retired and moved to Hendersonville and enrolled in the Teacher Training Program at the Asheville Yoga Center from March 2013 to June 2016, My certification was in Advanced Studies in Yoga with Therapeutic Influences. 

From there, I became interested in other programs that would benefit the 55 + population and worked towards additional certifications in Tai Chi for Arthritis & Fall Prevention, Strength & Balance, Aerobics and Light Weights for 55+ and Ageless Grace Brain Health.  

What is the saying:  Do what you love and love what you do.  That’s me!
