I was invited by Clifford Sweatte, senior student of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois to his Ashtanga Yoga class when I was diagnosed with chronic neurologic Lyme Disease. Clifford fully believed and encouraged me that the practice would heal my mind and body. I attended his class during an expected 3-year treatment. After 10 months with a daily practice, I completed treatment and continue to practice regularly. I credit Ashtanga Yoga for helping to rebuild my body and heal from the devastating effects of Lyme Disease.
I teach Ashtanga Yoga in Middleburg, Virginia in the original method with an emphasis on the therapeutic aspects. I teach led classes, Mysore and private sessions. Manju Jois certified and authorized me to teach both the Primary and Intermediate Series internationally. Along with Clifford and Manju, I have studied with David Williams and Greg Tebb.
