Yoga Therapy

'The essence of my father's teaching is this: it is not that the person needs to accommodate him- or herself to yoga, but rather the yoga practice must be tailored to fit each person"

"Yoga serves the individual, and does so through inviting transformation rather than by giving information"

- T.K.V. Desikachar

"Yoga therapy is the professional application of the principles and practices of yoga to promote health and well-being within a therapeutic relationship that includes personalized assessment, goal setting, lifestyle management, and yoga practices for individuals or small groups."(

I'm passionate about connecting with my clients individually, empowering them to find specific ways to improve their health, wellbeing, and quality of life.

A Certified Yoga Therapist* accredited by the International Association of Yoga Therapy (IAYT) and the American Viniyoga Institute (AVI), I offer individual Yoga Therapy both in person and online, small group sessions and series in the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya and T.K.V. Desikachar.

I reside in Belmont, California, where I hold my in person Yoga Therapy practice.

You can call me for a 15 minute free phone conversation to talk about your needs and interests, and to see if Yoga Therapy with me can be a good fit for you.
