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.
In addition to teaching yoga classes at my studio, Yoga Diva Harahan, I teach at Ochsner Fitness Center Heritage Plaza in Metairie and at ZOO Health Club in Kenner. I also do Spanish-English interpretations for injured Hispanic workers at their medical appointments.
In January 2019, I was excited to be an instructor on The Ageless Beauty: Yoga and Wellness cruise from Tampa, Florida to Cozumel, Mexico, teaching the sunrises 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. It's also fun working the phones during the WWOZ 90.7 FM membership drives and working in their Hospitality Tent during the the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
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!
