I was introduced to yoga when my mom took me to a studio as a child in the late 60s. This began a journey that has meandered back and forth through yoga, philosophy, fitness, and parenthood. My main residential teacher training was at the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, but I also studied several years with an Iyangar trained teacher, and have done workshops with Beryl Birch, Baron Baptiste, Lilias, David Swenson and many others. I have a BA in Philosophy from George Washington University, with an emphasis on metaphysics. I began teaching yoga and later group exercise in the late 1980s, and was in the vanguard of teachers bringing yoga from the ashram into the exercise club. I wrote on fitness, wellness, and yoga for a number of newsletters, and served as associate editor for the Journal of the Midatlantic Yoga Association for a couple of years. I first became an ACE certified group exercise instructor in 1990, and later completed 2 years of graduate study in exercise science. I believe my strengths are attention to detail, individual modification, and encouragement to kindness and acceptance for self and others. I strive always to deepen my practice physically, intellectually and spiritually.

    I have been taking Ariadne's yoga classes for about a year and the benefits have really 'paid off'.

    My husband and I have a camp in Maine. We have no electricity so we have to transport a generator on the back of his truck whenever we make the trip. Picking up the generator and placing it in the bed of the truck is not easy. I lack upper strength or should I say I use to lack upper strength. Much to my surprise I was able to help my husband pick up the generator, put it in the truck and then later pick it up and place it back on the ground when we reached our destination. I give all the credit to Ariadne's yoga class. I now have the upper body strength to help my husband. We were both pleasantly surprised.

    Thank you, Ariadne.

    I am sold on Ariadne's yoga classes! I used to suffer from chronic lower back pain. Even after taking medication & going to physical therapy, it persisted. I then tried Ariadne's yoga classes and within a short period of time, gradually, my pain disappeared.
    Her method of instruction is suitable for people at just about any level.
    She offers deeper postures for the more experienced but encourages everyone to listen to their own bodies & not to compare ourselves to others. Also, she offers a variety of routines so I don't get bored.
    I'm a faithful follower because I believe her classes keep me stronger & more flexible than I would be otherwise. Give her class a try!
