Introducing   JOYFLOW INSTITUTE!  


We are entering a new time of Spiritual Awakening and it is my great desire to serve a more global population, no longer limited to a local yoga studio.  I'm now focusing on offering my lifetime of training and experience in both Yoga and Enneagram to offer teaching and coaching to Yoga Teachers, Yoga Practitioners, and Enneagram Enthusiasts to go deeper into how these practices can be combined for greater self-awareness, healing and wholeness.  I also have a special place in my heart to help those suffering from stress, anxiety and depression, in developing a transformative personal practice.

Please contact me if you are curious and have questions:



I have continued to inspire, graduate and support new yoga teachers in a 200 Hour program registered with the Yoga Alliance, for 20 consecutive years. Right now, we are in the midst of our 2020 Fall Intensive, all in-person but on zoom.  So, you can join us from where ever you live in the world!

I invite you to join me in my new Facebook group:

Enneagram for Yogis:


Each Monday at 1:00 (CST) I post a Live Meditation and Mini-Training in Yoga and/or Enneagram.  From time to time I post a longer sampler of my teachings. Join the group for inspiration and uplifting community!
