Yoga Links

good heavens, this page needs re-invention.. I had better do my HW and get on this.  For I want to start singing the praises – and not just anecdotal evidence.  I’ll get back to you on this.

I possess a Ph.D. in Microbiology.  Studied a variety of infectious diseases, have a ton of publications to boast, I guess.  But I’ve elected to leave that world of stress behind.  I know my personal strengths lie in MindBody Healing.

Several years ago I renounced my scientific career as over.  It was killing me. Teaching yoga/practicing yoga became so much more interesting.  But, just like I can’t kick my Catholic Guild, the scientific process isn’t something you can completely punt.  So I’m so stoked to be seeing experiential research into the benefits of Yoga.  I’ve finally stumbled upon a compilation of references that I actually *want* to explore. Wow!  This is sort of interesting!    I’m gonna delve into it and I will update this page with my interpretations/conclusions/questions for future research.  Heck, maybe I’ll even write a grant to participate in such research!  Perhaps I could still use my scientific training towards what I fervently believe in.

So I’ll be re-visiting this issue!

While I teach a variety of styles of yoga, my forte is Yin Yoga.  If you are interested in what Yin Yoga is about check out yinyoga.com.  Bernie Clark is one of the founders he is good stuff.

Me doing the Yin Straddle Stretch at IDRI. With practice this pose becomes addictive. 🙂

I was certified in a 200 hour program at The Ashram in Kirkland WA.  But my dream is to become a Jivamukti instructor someday 🙂

I have been really grooving on Erich Schiffmann of Exhale/Venice Beach A LOT of late  He is a classically trained instructor of Freedom Yoga – and is a student of the great yoga greats.  He keeps it very accessible.  I re-found him when I really needed him, post move to ABQ
