Yoga Credentials

Hi! I have practiced yoga since I took my first yoga class in college back in the '70's. For years I practiced Iyengar Yoga, one of the more precise forms of American Yoga. I received my teacher training at the Integral Yoga ashram in Virginia. These days, I use my training in yoga and my experiences as a farmer and mathematician to create opportunities for reflection and learning to achieve balance in intellect, body, and spirit.
