Certified 500hr Kripalu Yoga Teacher & SilverSneakers Flex Instructor

The word Namasté can translate to I bow to the divine light within you, and we use it at the end of a yoga class, signifying it's completion.

Jai Bhagwan translated directly means victory to the light.  It is used when at Kripalu as it is from the Gujarati region of India where Swami Kripalu lived.


​Jai Bhagwan


I received my 500 hour Yoga Teacher Certification at The Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, Stocksbridge, Mass. The trainings included, Alignment and Anatomy, Basics of Ayurveda, Restorative Yoga, Chair Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Vinyasa Flow, Advanced Asana and Meditation. 
Kripalu Yoga is a creative and skillful blend of classical yoga postures, breathing practices, and meditation and relaxation techniques. Classes focus on the fundamentals of yoga postures, emphasizing safe alignment and students are reminded to honor their own body's capabilities at each practice. 
I have been teaching yoga since 2008 and in 2018, being in my sixties, I became a qualified SilverSneakers Flex Instructor, to offer a broader range of health & fitness classes to my age group. This has given me the opportunity to offer SilverSneakers Chair Yoga, SIlverSneakers Circuit (Cardio and Strength Training) and SilverSneakers Gentle Yoga Stretch & Relaxation. These classes are open to everyone regardless of age, and if you are a member of SilverSneakers the classes are free.
