I was born and raised in Iowa, and spent my summers in the Alexandria area until I graduated from college and moved to Maryland, where I spent the past 35 years. My husband and I recently retired and returned to the Midwest to settle in the Alexandria area where we can enjoy the beautiful lakes and a slower-paced lifestyle. I began my yoga journey 7 years ago, practicing with a variety of amazing teachers in several studios in the Annapolis, Maryland area. Practicing yoga became a way for me to find stillness and connect with God. I completed Evolutions 200 Hour Yin Yang Yoga training under the instruction of Tina Lanzoni in Annapolis, Maryland and am certified through Yoga Alliance.
