She studied Classical Hatha Yoga and then Ashtanga Vinyasa for many years. She studied with both David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff and the late Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois to name a few.   She learned alignment principles with Iygengar yoga and Anusara yoga.  Restorative, Yin and Viniyoga helped her slow down.   She is student of Baba Hari Dass as well.
