Yogacharya DorothyOis a Yoga Alliance Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) and Yoga Teacher Trainer. She shares the sacred and powerful potential of yoga, meditation and spiritual wisdom, and enjoys the contentment on the faces of students post-class - that nothing else has changed in their lives during the class - yet they somehow feel better having come to the mat. A full-time yogi, she believes we are all eternal students on the path to enlightenment and feels honored to share what she has learned.She is grateful for her teachers: Lisa M, Liz, Skandavel, Amar Jyoti and her student friends who present daily lessons. DorothyO is a vinyasa flow yogi, kriyaban (kriya yoga), Eriksonian hypnotist and intuitive. She teaches All Levels, Gentle, Chair, Yin, Restorative and Prenatal practices. She is also certified in Assisting & Adjusting (Stephanie Pappas). She enjoys presenting the Sutras of Patanjali in their present world applications, and bringing Light into her practices both on and off the mat. DorothyO believes yoga teaches us that all Beings (seeming friend or foe) are giving us the opportunity to choose the path of peace and walk continuously toward Light... to BE Light: That we are One (with many many names).
