My Journey with Yoga
My love affair with yoga began long before I knew about the Camino de Santiago. I tried my first yoga class in the 1990s and instantly felt relief in my hips and back. When I discovered that a daily yoga practice also helped ease stress from the workplace and prevent hiking injuries, I was hooked. In 2016, I signed up for teacher training at Yoga Kula in Berkeley. I began teaching yoga to coworkers and members of a hiking group.
My training continued in 2017 at Namaste Yoga in Berkeley, led by four of the Bay Area’s best yoga teachers: Abby Tucker, Baxter Bell, Domonick Wegesin and Vickie Russell Bell. As a graduate of their “Every Day Sacred” program, I have 300+ hours of teacher training.

Yoga for Hikers and Camino de Santiago Pilgrims
I truly believe that many common injuries can be prevented by practicing yoga, so I look for opportunities to teach yoga for pilgrims. I taught a yoga class at Hospitalero training, the 2018 American Pilgrims national gathering, and at albergues in Spain in 2018 Below are a few blog posts I wrote about my yoga journey thus far.
