Although I have only taught yoga for 1 year, I have been teaching all my adult life: public schools, college, swimming programs and even home schooling my own children. I am a born teacher. I have always had compliments from my students in my approach to people, my teaching style, my confidence, and my humor. I have genuine care for my students, and they feel it. Upon leaving my studio, I overheard one student say to another, "I love her." That's all the encouragement I need, to know that I touch hearts as well as help them physically.
