"After being a yoga student for 20 years, in 2004 I completed the nationally-recognized Integrative Yoga Therapy teacher training. I’m an insured instructor registered with the Yoga Alliance and have an M.A. in communications from the University of Minnesota. I am also a communications consultant and workshop facilitator specializing in women’s topics, journaling and dream work. I’m an avid hiker and biker and in 1996 climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. In the summer of 2012 I walked 100km of the lovely Camino de Santiago in Spain. I’ve had asthma and allergies since childhood and use yoga and meditation to manage both."
