Approaching New Paradigms
A workshop in adaptability and resilience through mindful movement, nature and conversation
Taos, New Mexico
September 11-15, 2022
This four and a half day workshop is an opportunity to reconnect with self and refresh your outlook through exploring nature, yoga, silence, and play. Take time to cultivate self-awareness and recognize how circumstances beyond our control affect your being, and how you respond and reflect those reactions on others. By starting with self, we can then move outward with compassion and strength to support the adaptability needed for us to thrive as a global community in these changing times. Give yourself these days to reflect, embody, explore, and connect to your resilience. Join us

Daily guided hikes

Meet Your Teachers and Chef!
I began studying yoga in 1996 as part of a dance therapy program in college. My formal yoga practice began in 2000 with Miguel Latronica in Chicago studying Astanga Yoga. After a year of practicing with Miguel, I began teaching for him and assisting with his teacher trainings. I had taught Pilates for many years and eventually moved on to teaching yoga full time while developing my career in massage therapy. After many years of studying Astanga Yoga, I branched out into other styles, eventually finding my way to Iyengar Yoga. My classes are influenced by the flow found in Astanga and the alignment detail of Iyengar. My classes are lighthearted with an educational focus to promote posture awareness, injury prevention and tools for healing from injury. I bring a strong influence from dance into my teaching style. I enjoy leading workshops for teachers either through a teacher training or as continuing education in hands-on assisting, props, ethics in yoga and working with injuries. I also teach classes in breathwork and Tension and Trauma Release Exercises (TRE®) both online and in person and dance.
Yoga has been a pillar of my physical and mental health practice for over two decades. This path began as a stretching routine I incorporated to maintain an athletic lifestyle and later became an exploration and fascination with the ‘so much more’ that yoga has to offer. As my practice and my body matured the curiosity (and occasional misconceptions) about yoga by family and friends lead me to teach – and that decision has been one of the best I’ve made. My original yoga teacher training (YTT 250+) took place in Mysore, India under Yogacharya Barath Shetty – a disciple of B.K.S. Iyengar – in the IndeaYoga style, earning a teaching certificate in 2012. IndeaYoga combines Hatha, Ashtanga and Iyengar styles including elements of meditation, pranayama and Patanjali ‘s Yoga Sutras. Beyond sharing my yoga and movement practice, my work-life further delves into the link between human and environmental health. My focus centers in the realms of restoration ecology, health & conservation education, and recreation for mental health.
