I completed the 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2008 at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health.  Since graduating at the 200 hour level  I have enhanced my yoga teacher training with numerous Kripalu Yoga Teacher trainings, including Instructing Yoga For Special Populations & Special Needs Groups, Basics of Ayurveda (Yoga’s sister science), Restorative Yoga, Chair Yoga, Guiding Relaxation, Back Care, Leading Vinyasa, Teaching Advanced Asana and Guiding Meditation.  Eventually graduating in June 2015 to the 500 hour yoga teacher Kripalu Certification level.

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.

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.
