My yoga practice and teaching has spanned almost five decades. I first taught yoga classes in 1969 in Mt. Shasta and have continued teaching in various locales since then. I am registered with Yoga Alliance (E-RTY500).
I've worked in glass for almost as many years, both stained glass and fused glass. I designed and created windows and lamps and over a dozen stained glass pattern books and coloring books, published by Dover Publications. I recently completed two new Kindle e-Book stained glass pattern books which are available now on Amazon.
Though my study of astrology began in the 1960s when I learned to draw up charts for family and friends, only recently have I made my astrology readings available to the general public. I am delighted to help people by using this ancient art as a tool for uncovering the patterns of destiny and direction in their lives.
Fortunate to pursue many different avenues of interest, I am curious, multi-talented, and a facile learner, with skills which I hone through dedication and focus. Crafty artistic endeavors calm and center my mind. I love learning and I make time to read and study daily.
I've earned a BA in Anthropology, an MA, with distinction, focusing on Cultural Ecology, and Lifelong Teaching Credentials for the California Community Colleges, one in Art, the other in Anthropology. I've taught academic subjects in schools and colleges while also teaching glass and yoga classes throughout the years. I believe we all have talents and strengths that need to be uncovered and cherished - not everyone may be a scholar, but everyone has a contribution yet to be made, a skill yet unlearned, a standard still to be attained.
My unique perspective, sense of humor, and ability to share with others my knowledge, experience and life lessons inspires my teaching. When I speak or teach, I summarize and simplify, drawing out the the important concepts and explaining them in an easily grasped way.
