As a teacher for over 20 years I have witnessed first-hand the wonderful, varied, and often seemingly miraculous ways a yoga practice can enhance people’s lives. Along with my friend, Tom Quinn, I opened yogaview in 2002 with the intention of creating a center where beginners and experienced yoga students alike could come to fall in love with the practice. We have developed one of the most respected teacher training programs in the region and it’s deeply rewarding to see so many of our graduates teaching throughout the city and beyond. I’m just as excited about the many opportunities that yogaview offers to beginners and hope that everyone who walks through our doors feels welcome. My own practice has been influenced by years of study in the Iyengar and Ashtanga lineages and their offshoots, as well as other functional movement modalities and various martial art forms. The teachings I offer are rooted in these traditional and modern influences, but I try to present them in a non-dogmatic and inspirational way in order to help individuals find their own connection to the very personal and constantly evolving practice of yoga. I also weave my love of music into the practice by creating unique musical backdrops for many of my classes. I’m deeply grateful to the wonderful community of students and teachers who make yogaview such a welcoming refuge.
