About Me

Yoga changed my Life and it's just too good a thing to keep to myself! I have been practicing yoga since 1995 and am a certified yoga instructor. I teach a combination of classical Hatha, Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow. My teaching style is safe, compassionate and challenging at the same time. I teach at a number of studios, and also offer private and group lessons!

In addition to my schedule, I post other writings here, about yoga and Life in general. For private or group lessons, contact me at: workofheartyoga@gmail.com .

A play about women in the military this Sat in Culver City!

Dear Yogis and Yoginis,

My friend, April Fitzsimmons, is starring in a one-woman play called The Need to Know, which has received fabulous reviews. This Saturday, August 2nd, The Need to Know will be playing at the Kirk Douglas Theater in downtown Culver City, and the tickets are only $5! This play is supposed to be fantastic, showing the lives of women in different parts of the U.S. Military, from Basic Training to the National Security Agency.

I will be at the performance this Saturday and if any of you are interested, please check out April's website at: www.aprilfitzsimmons.com where you can get more info on the play. You can also call to reserve tickets at (310) 880-0911.

I can't wait to see April in this performance. She's an amazing woman, so it's sure to be an amazing show!

Leaving the Y, and new schedule changes...

Thanks to all of you who have been so patient while I've been out the last few weeks, and thank you to all of my Yoga sisters and brothers who have subbed for me (Cheryl, Samara, Jay, Rennie, Fawntice, and anyone else who stepped up for me!) I'm back and up and running.

There are a few changes to my schedule, so please check my calendar above. I am no longer teaching the Monday and Friday morning classes at YNS, but fear not... I have handed them over to Rennie, and she is fabulous. It just works out better for both of our schedules. HOWEVER- I am STILL TEACHING THE SUNDAY morning class at YNS... As for my Weds night class at the Y, please read on below.

Also note that I am still teaching in lots of places, and lots of times, and as always, I am available for private lessons. Feel free to call me at (310) 559-2570 to set up an appointment.

To My YMCA Yoga Students:

Some of you know that I have been out the last few weeks tending to my family. I just wanted you to know that I am doing fine and have appreciated all of your thoughts and prayers. However, I have had time to think about where I need to focus my attention and have made some tough decisions. At this time, I need to focus on some of my other work in yoga, and on my family. This means that I will no longer be teaching my Wednesday night class at the YMCA. You can check with the staff at the Y to see if the class will be taken over by another teacher or moved to a different slot. My sincere thanks to Fawntice for subbing for me over the last few weeks!

I have so greatly enjoyed volunteering to teach at the YMCA, and it has been a real privilege to work with all of my students there. I have learned so much from you all, and wanted you to know that you have all touched my life in a very real and meaningful way. Some of you have been with me for over 2 years, and I will not forget your spirit, or your dedication to your practice.

I appreciate all of your understanding and thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me be your teacher. You can always see what I am up to on my yoga blog at: www.workofheartyoga.com .

I hope that you will continue your practice, and as always...remember to breathe, drink lots of water, eat good food, and be in good company, because Life is too short!

Shanti, Shanti, Shanti... Peace, Peace, Peace.
