I am pleased to see that we have differences. May we together become greater than the sum of all of us.

What led you to yoga?
A love of fitness, the movement, and the peace I feel when doing Yoga. That made me want to bring others to the practice, too.
Three words that reflect how you want to BE each day…
Kind ~ Compassionate ~ Caring
Three activities that inspire being fully present, other than yoga…
- Holding my new granddaughter
- Spending time with all three of my boys together
Pose that reminds you of what it’s like to be a beginner…
Backbends and arm balances
The most beautiful sight you’ve ever seen…
Did I mention my new grand-baby?
How do you begin each day?
Coffee~ Good Morning America~ deep breathing
A bit more…
Certified through the American Council on Exercise and the American Aerobics and Fitness , I have taught fitness classes for more than twenty-three years, and I am also a certified personal trainer. I have been teaching Yoga for 10 years, and I am certified through Yoga Fit levels 1, 2, 3- carrying a certification for Senior yoga. A lifelong student of anatomy, I am now beginning additional training through RYA and Kashi Atlanta Yoga School, concentrating on meditation and spirituality. I was raised in the South by by yankee parents, so I still say yinz but with a Southern drawl. The fine young men I raised, Paul, Michael, and Sean, are among my life’s greatest accomplishments, and now I have three step-children and one crazy dog who continue to add riches to my life. No matter where you are on your yoga journey, I will teach you at your level; your time in my class will be for you. Through the teaching of body awareness and of how to pay attention to your body and to each breath it takes, I hope you leave my class feeling like you’ve worked hard and have had an hour of moving meditation all at the same time. I am filled with joy at the prospect of working with such a wonderful group of instructors and of being part of Becky’s vision for this new studio, Yoga East.
