Welcome to my site! I am a stay at home mama seeking to find a small corner of the world to enjoy my family, my cooking, my yoga practice, and my wines.
I am also a fledgling podcaster (you can find that here…iamthewineyogi.com), a Level 2 sommelier, a private chef, yoga instructor, home school teacher, and part-time gamer. I like to work hard, play hard, and am trying to age with grace, humility, and a whole lot of humor.
Blogging is new to me, so I beg your pardon for my site…I promise to keep working on it!
Cheers and Namaste
What I Do
Private yoga instruction. Classes range from Iyengar based, therapeutic practices to restorative and more gentle practices.
Private chef work. Contact me for more details. Due to Covid-19, I am limited in what I can provide at this time.
Sommelier and cooking lessons. We can conduct these via Zoom if that works better for you.
