Thoughtful, encouraging, & light-hearted, Dorothy is a strong believer in the physical benefits that occur on the mat and the mind/spirit benefits that we carry off the mat and into our lives. Thus the yoga mat becomes a laboratory, or microcosm, to learn about life, to slow down, and to calm the nervous system. Her classes draw from diverse traditions including Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, & Kundalini. Having completed her 200-hour level teacher training with Sandra Carden of Union Yoga in 2009, she is also highly influenced by Sandra Carden's/Union Yoga's unique, alignment-based approach to hatha yoga. Dorothy loves to explore different approaches to yoga and encourages her students to do the same. She continues her training through workshops, conferences, yoga anatomy coursework, and mindfulness training.
