I’m a graduate of the 200 hour yoga teacher training at Yogawood studio, AFPA Certified Nutrition and Wellness Consultant, university professor, family and gender communication scholar, spouse, and mother of six. I live and teach in southern New Jersey.
One of my life passions is yoga, and another is food (particularly vegan food*). This blog is my little effort to discuss these issues, and how they intersect, in a way that helps me develop my understandings of self and also provides information for those currently engaged in, or interested in, yoga, and veganism. You can also check out my writing about family, food, and yoga on elephant journal.
In the past, I have taught yoga (including gentle, yin, vinyasa, and Jivamukti) at Yogawood in Collingswood, fitness centers in the area, and for private groups. Currently, I am teaching only on a sub basis; however, individual yoga sessions are also available. See the Services page for more information.
I hope you enjoy the bits and pieces of information I present here, and I look forward to hearing from you!
*Recipe disclaimer – I read a LOT of vegan recipes in books and websites. If I am presenting one that I know I got directly from another page, I will cite the original. Often, however, my recipes are cobbled together from reading many similar recipes and pulling together my own based on what I have on hand or what I like. Sometimes, they are based on my remembered tastes of a food I had. I pretty firmly believe that there is nothing new under the sun in recipes, so I owe a big debt to my teaching influences, including my mother, my grandmother, Isa from Post Punk Kitchen, Rich and Kate at Vedge, Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer, and many more!
