Along with teaching yoga classes, and working with private clients, I have conducted retreats, yoga teacher training and yoga therapy training in Greece, Uganda, the Navajo Nation, the Dominican Republic, Detroit, New Jersey, Colorado, and Hawaii. I am an Advanced Level Certified Yoga Therapist of Outreach and Advanced Level Yoga Teacher, whose specialty is working with those who have experienced trauma. I am the founder and director of Yoga Impact Institute, a residential and online yoga training school. Yoga Impact Institute is a 200-hour, 300-hour, and YACEP school registered with the Yoga Alliance. I also direct Yoga Impact, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) that focuses on sharing yoga with vulnerable populations – women and children in shelters, at-risk youth, senior citizens, war veterans, and prisoners, as well as the homeless. Yoga Impact also brings yoga teacher training to populations that don´t have access to training and mentors yoga therapists and yoga teachers in their work with these populations. My approach to teaching yoga is the product of 32 years of my own practice, ownership of a successful yoga studio in Hawaii for 5 years, 11 years of training yoga teachers, 7 years of training yoga therapists, and 22 years of teaching. I was the director of Calm Steps to Vibrant Actions: Yoga, Spirituality, Trauma, and Social Justice, a summit held on the Navajo Nation in Arizona; and a presenter at the Accessible Yoga Conference in New York City. My work has been featured in the Accessible Yoga Journal, the Huffington Post, Yoga Therapy Today, Boulder Magazine, and Natural Awakenings. I have done yoga therapy presentations at the International Women’s Writing Guild, the Global Ayurveda Conference, and the Northern New Jersey Transitional Yoga Conference.
