About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Iyengar Yoga teacher, poet, essayist
Location Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States
Introduction I started teaching Iyengar Yoga full-time in 2001 to heal myself and offer a wellness practice to my community. I use writing as a healing practice and write essays, poems, and songs, and teach workshops combining movement and writing. I am a former Milwaukee Poet Laureate and I have a few poetry chapbooks and a full-length collection. I recently moved from my home of 25 years in Milwaukee, WI, to join the urban healing revolution in Detroit, MI! Here, I am working on radical self/community healing practices, which include community gift Iyengar Yoga classes, meditation, music, writing, good food, and more.
Interests anything to disrupt the cycle of production/consumption, including but not limited to gift culture, foraging wild foods, fermentation, crafting, intentional communities, cooperative self-governance, and much more
