I started taking yoga in 1980. A friend had been to Feathered Pipe Ranch to study with Judith and on her return wanted to teach. I went to be supportive and stayed because I liked how I felt. The next year my husband had a heart attack while we were on vacation in the mountains of Colorado. Yoga was the path I chose to handle the stress. I began to go to every workshop I could find in my area. I also started going to Feathered Pipe Ranch to study. All of my teachers have been Iyengar teachers. I have had the privilege of going to India twice to study with Mr. Iyengar and Geeta. I have studied with many teachers, but find I always come back to Judith. I have taken Learning to Teach Restorative Yoga and I have also taken the advanced Relax and Renew. I teach in downtown Missoula, Montana, at the Yoga Fitness Center. I teach on-going classes for all levels. When not teaching or working, I enjoy gardening and encouraging the dog to take me for walks.
