On one level, if a person, a group or an organization is looking for a certified yoga instructor, I am that. I have a mat and will travel, but more holistically, I do retreats, lectures (series), and counseling work on spirituality and prayers and officiate weddings. My approach can be both interreligious and/or nonreligious, as I seek to encourage people's discovery and deepen their awareness of the spiritual dimensions of life.
