A couple of years ago, I moved out of New York City and am loving
the change of pace, first in the Berkshires and now the Pioneer
Valley, the quiet, the green, the mountains and lakes. I am a
dancer, yogi and a teacher. I love to walk in the park, hike and
camp. Not really a hayseed from Kansas anymore after living for 30
years in NYC but still have a bit of a twang. Love to joke around
and play; love to discuss ideas and politics. I keep in shape doing
yoga and swimming these days.
What I’m doing with my life
Big changes in full process now, after I volunteered at Kripalu
Center for Yoga and Health while I reinvented myself as a yoga and
dance teacher, I've built a career in those areas. I've been a
professional dancer, worked in a bank, and taught dance in public
schools. My spiritual life as a practitioner of yoga is growing and
I want to support that. I'm ready to find a beautiful mountain with
a lake near by which to settle down.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at dancing, at sensing and recognizing what is
going on for another person. I love children and I'm very good at
working with them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told a number of things: my hair, my butt, how kind I am.
I'd be interested in hearing what you have to say.
