Welcome to Wellness Way!

I began my journey to wellness over 30 years ago when I took my first yoga class. Subsequently, I made the choice to eat organically, explore meditation and eventually start a career in yoga.

With a strong background in Iyengar Yoga, I built an eclectic teaching style by training with masters such as Judith Lasater, Ramanand Patel, Shiva Rae, Erich Schiffmann and Rodney Yee. Annual workshops and teacher training programs continue to add to my knowledge.

As the owner and primary instructor of Yoga by Design since 1999, I am fully certified to teach Hatha yoga and have been registered with Yoga Alliance since 2002. My program teachers, Goswami Kriyananda, Kim Schwarz and David Lipschutz continue to inspire me. I am also designated as a Continuing Education Provider through Yoga Alliance.

Initially this blog centered around the topic of yoga. It originated from a desire to share knowledge with my students near and far as we became separated by space and time. It was a venue for documenting discoveries, resources, and inspiring yogic journeys. Quite simply, Yoga Posts, the blog, was a dedication to the teachings and a vehicle for keeping the connection between my students and I alive and strong. Eventually it lead to the publication of my first book entitled “Yoga Posts: Building a Steady Yoga Practice One Week at a Time.”

In 2021, I graduated from the Kerala Ayurveda Academy which provided me with certification to provide Ayurvedic Wellness counseling.

And now, with On Wellness Way, I hope to spread my wings even further by incorporating more health discoveries and pathways to wellness. The blog will reflect a broader journey, one that incorporates lifestyle, Ayurveda, yoga, essential oils, gardening and all the other ways we can enhance our joy, vibrancy, sustainability and longevity.

I welcome new ideas, contributors, and general input.  Feel free to contact me at:  yogabdstudio@gmail.com
