I have practiced yoga for 30+ years and have found it to be a foundation for my own life and well-being. I knew that many of my acupuncture clients would benefit greatly from ongoing yoga classes but wanted to make appropriate referrals. I found Svaroopa® Yoga and it was a wonderful and very safe place to send clients.
I started attending classes myself and then took the teacher training. I have been teaching yoga classes since 2004 and in 2006 I completed the Svaroopa® Yoga Teacher Training Program and became a Certified Svaroopa® Yoga Teacher (CSYT). I have trained extensively with Swami Nirmalananda Saraswati (formerly Rama Berch), the originator of Svaroopa® Yoga and I am currently enrolled in Advanced Teacher Training. I am also a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance at 500 hours.

I have practiced various styles of yoga, including Hatha, Vinyasa, Power Yoga, and Bikram on and off since probably 2001, but no one style ever really stuck.
In 2007, when I was struggling with some health issues I accidently found Svaroopa® Yoga. At the time, I was involved in multiple healing modalities, including acupuncture, osteopathic manipulation, and various supplements and dietary changes. While all of these were valuable and helpful to me, I was willing to continue to try anything that might make me feel better; so I went to a class, not knowing anything about Svaroopa® or what it was.
During my 3rd class, something shifted in my body and my mind. I distinctly remember being in a pose during class and thinking "this is what I've been looking for!" I really had no idea what I was looking for, but something told me this was it. With the addition of Svaroopa® to my "healing regimen" I was able to finally turn the corner and make my way back to health.
I also had no idea when I discovered Svaroopa® that I was heading into some very difficult years in my personal life and it would be the Svaroopa® Yoga that would help support me through that.
These days, I realize that Svaroopa® was no accident in my life, but a gift. It enriches my life, cares for my body, and opens up my mind and heart in ways that nothing else can.
I've decided to go through the teacher training and become certified as a Svaroopa® Yoga teacher, and eventually a therapist, as a way to share this gift and bring its joy to as many people as I can.
I have now completed 200 hours of professional yoga training through Master Yoga Foundation’s Teacher Trainer Program, and will soon be registered with the National Yoga Alliance.
