​Jai Bhagwan

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.

Certified 500hr Kripalu Yoga Teacher & SilverSneakers Flex Instructor

Hi, I completed the 500 hour yoga teacher training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health.  Since graduating I have often returned to Kripalu to enhance my yoga teaching as well as my personal practice and growth.  Kripalu Yoga Teacher trainings, include,  Alignment and Anatomy, Instructing Yoga For Special Populations & Special Needs Groups, Basics of Ayurveda (Yoga’s sister science), Restorative Yoga, Chair Yoga, Guiding Yoga Nidra (Deep Relaxation), Back Care, Leading Vinyasa Flow, Teaching Advanced Asana and Guiding 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.  It is my hope that everyone leaves class feeling happier and healthier then when they first arrived.

I have been teaching yoga since 2008 and in 2018, being in my sixties, I became a qualified SilverSneakers Flex Instructor, to offer classes to those in my age group and older.  This has given me the opportunity to offer, Chair Yoga,

Circuit (Cardio and Strength Training) and Gentle Yoga Stretch & Relaxation on a weekly basis.  These classes are open to everyone, regardless of age, and if you are a SilverSneakers Member the classes are free.
