After taking classes with various TryYoga instructors, I did my teacher training under Laura Fiedler-Ates (TriYoga teacher, New Orleans Yoga Pioneer and Master Raja Yoga Teacher), getting my TriYoga teacher certifications in 2011 and 2012.
Post Covid-19, I am teaching yoga classes from my home--instead of at our studio in River Ridge. I also teach All Level Yoga at Ochsner Fitness Center Heritage Plaza. I do Spanish-English interpretations for injured Hispanic workers at their medical appointments.
In January of 2019 and of 2020, I was an instructor on The Ageless Beauty: Yoga and Wellness cruise from Tampa, Florida to Cozumel, Mexico, teaching the sunrise yoga classes aboard the Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas.
I was a life-long Spanish teacher before "re-wiring" as a yoga instructor. I am also certified in Command Spanish® and in English as a Second Language, and have taught these courses at businesses in the New Orleans area.
I enjoy volunteer activities in the NOLA area, two of which are with radio stations. A special one is with WRBH 88.3 FM, Reading Radio for the Blind and Print Handicapped, where in addition to reading each week, I have taught a few yoga classes that aired. I volunteer during the WWOZ 90.7 FM membership drives and during the the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. (Volunteering is currently on a pandemic pause.)
My hobby is photography. I look for the special in what might seem ordinary. Nature, festivals, musicians, architecture, and animals populate my photos. In both photography and in yoga, I get a deeper feeling of life and of being connected to universal energy.
I love language. I love yoga. I love life. From personal experience I know that yoga works and that it is never too late to begin!
