Following a career in communication and being devoted yoga for many years, I teach yoga to inspire students to breathe, move, and look inward.  The yoga journey begins as the mind is quieted by the breath, opening space for inner sight, and allowing tranquility to enter. With movement through stretching and poses, the body grows stronger, flexible, and balanced. Ultimately surrendering to meditation, the heart is nurtured, and the body energized.

My professional preparation includes RYT 200 Teacher Training, Get Ready to Learn: Therapeutic Yoga in the Classroom, and Restorative Yoga. I am currently working on my RYT 300 Teacher Training, which I will complete in June 2020. I hold a Master’s Degree in Speech and Hearing Science. While practicing Speech-Language Pathology, I taught students (including those with autism and related disabilities) yoga to increase focus on learning and have fun. I used breathing and relaxation strategies with those who stutter to achieve smoother speech.


My yoga path began twenty years ago when I attended my first class. Halfway through, my body felt energized and my mind clear. Yoga became part of my life.


The practice of yoga has many benefits both on and off the mat.  I provide a peaceful, safe, and welcoming space. "Indu," the name for the moon in Sanskrit, means "Bright Drop" and is the name my yoga teacher gave me. It is my intention to share yoga, so others may receive many beneficial “bright drops,” spark their inner light, and add well-being to their lives.

Breathe and Move...

...Calm Your Mind...

...Ignite Your Inner Light
