200-Hr Certified Yoga Teacher
Having a background in theatre, Judy first dabbled in yoga back in the 1990s as a way to stay fit while pursuing an acting career in New York City. Many years later (having retired from performing) she returned to yoga in a more serious way to help manage stress and arthritis. She continues to be astonished at yoga’s profound transformative powers of the mind, body and spirit.
She brings a love of poetry to her teaching and encourages a compassionate philosophy while focusing on proper alignment and using the breath as the vehicle for being and becoming our truest most authentic selves.
Judy completed yoga teacher training at Pilgrimage of the Heart Yoga in 2016 and Silver Age Yoga training program for seniors in 2015, both in San Diego. She holds an MFA from the University of Southern California.
