Yoga is for Every Body

After teaching Yoga for about 25 years, my body began to change, and so did my Yoga practice. With more curves to accomodate,  I began to adapt classical Yoga postures for my comfort. I was inspired to share what I was learning about my body with others like me, who may not look like the standard Yoga model, but who are interested in staying fit and healthy regardless of their size. The result was my first DVD, Big Yoga Hatha 1, a 60 minute practice that Dr. Dean Ornish has called “invigorating and restorative”.
