Barbara began practicing yoga at a gym during her early 20’s, while in graduate school and working full time. Since then, it has been her source of exercise, stress relief, and spiritual connection. Barbara came to Yoga Haven’s teacher training program with the desire to deepen her practice and learn more about the history and philosophy of yoga.
She discovered amazing teachers, a sense of community, and an atmosphere of peace while training at Yoga Haven. Falling in love with teaching was an added bonus. She completed her 200-hour teacher certification in 2010. Barbara believes yoga is a lifelong practice, that there is always more to learn and new areas to explore, yet the ancient and consistent foundations of yoga allow the practitioner to find her “home” on the mat. She enjoys sharing her love of yoga and its many physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits with her students. Barbara is also a speech therapist in a public school, working with students with autism and other developmental disabilities.
