I taught American literature for a number of years, and later worked as a professional editor. I returned to creative writing – both as a teacher and a practitioner – in the late 1990s. After practicing yoga and meditation for many years, I began teaching informally in 1999, and in 2007 I became a registered yoga teacher. The profound connections between these two important areas of my life and work have led, in recent years, to a series of yoga and meditation workshops for writers, including the recent class Body Speaking.

I also teach beginning writing, poetry revision, writing in nature, movement, meditation, and yoga nidra classes, both at writers’ retreats and at home.

Please contact me if you would like to set up a workshop or attend a class in Hilo.
