I went to Western culinary institute in Portland, Oregon which included nutrition courses. After graduating, I came back to Maui and started my own personal chef working for a naturopathic doctor and started a healthy foods catering business. After a while, I began teaching nutrional foods cooking classes at restaurants and at the local college. I also authored "Simple, Healthy Delights", a collection of recipes that I created. All recipes are dairy free, sugar free and gluten free.
I studied Iyengar yoga with an emphasis in proper alignment, and enrolled in teacher training courses. I then took teacher training classes in the yoga and movement Arts. I started to intern at the studio that I was training at and started to teach classes there under the studio owners' supervision. Then I started to teach there on a regular basis and ran the studio when the owner would leave the country. I taught yoga classes and movement classes for many years at that studio and at other studios in the area. I love to teach all kinds of subjects around yoga and fitness and look forward to helping you with whatever you need to learn :-)
