I competed in Judo tournaments throughout my life and in 2004, I returned from the World Masters Championship in Vienna with several injuries.

What do you love about teaching?
I love helping students connect to their energy- their ki- as a way to transform their lives.

The sense of mind, body, and spirit I feel after every class I take.
