The blessing of yoga found me at 50. Yoga finds you when you are ready. It is never too late! After retirement as a tenured professor of dental public health at the LSU School of Dentistry; I began a new path of continually practicing, studying, and teaching yoga. Yoga enables me travel into my truest heart; “authentic self”. In the Bhakti yoga spirit of devotion, love, and relationship, I share this teaching: “You are perfect just as you are in this present moment. Trust your innate wisdom. See yourself with eyes of love.”

Restorative yoga opens and heals. It IS possible to discover your wholeness with acceptance and peace. Silence and stillness create your “map” in life. Through svadhyaya, your yogic self-study, we can find clarity and choose to live life with zeal.

Simply put there are three things that have shaped me into the person that I am today: Awareness, Loss, and Surrender. Practicing these virtues through yoga continually creates and transforms. The journey of awareness, loss, and surrendering always brings a new path and new life with peace and JOY. Restorative yoga asana allows you to feel the sensations in your body. My classes consist of nurturing long spaces of silence, with dharmic guided meditation. Healing vibratory sound baths from crystal singing bowls and Koshi chimes accompany the practice.
