BENEFITING: Off The Mat, Into The World
EVENT DATE: Dec 09, 2012
I have been in the fitness community since 1985, teaching group and individual exercise, dance, cycling, and stretching classes throughout the mid-west and internationally. While teaching at Club Med a student approached me and said that what I had just taught was yoga. After that I decided to formally study what apparently I had already been teaching. It began with a weekend yoga certification course at a fitness convention, then a week long Ashtanga course with David Swenson and his wife Shelley, followed by a month study with Pathabbi Jois at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore India, a 200 hour certification with Jan Hauenstein and then have been and currently studying Prana Vinyasa with Shiva Rea since 2004. With combined studies of marketing-management, athletic training and psychology, my education continues to be diverse in dance, martial arts, Pilates, kettlebell, yoga and massage therapy. I like to lead my life with the inspiration of Gandhi’s quote “Live as if you are going to die tomorrow. Learn as if you are going to live forever.”
I am thrilled to be a part of You- a fOrce aGainst trAfficking. We must realize that everything we do makes a difference whether you are able do donate a few dollars to a charity supporting the victims, whether you are the one who founded a charity to provide a safe haven or whether you are the lawyer in court fighting for the rights of these innocent children and adults. You are a force! And together that force is even stronger.
