A little more about me . . .

Dd practices yoga on and off the mat.  This includes a daily yoga and meditation practice, and an expanding inclusion of ayervedic thinking and practices.  Off the mat, Dd  mindfully nurtures her passions: making beautiful, healthy food, clothes for herself and her family, tending an urban garden oasis, writing an occasional poem, painting and sharing time with family , especially  outside and near the water. 

Dd has had a long career in the nonprofit human services sector.  Professional experience includes child and family advocacy, program management in behavioral health, and a minority health consultant, nonprofit coach and grant writer. A highlight in her careet was a year spent opening every meeting she facilitated (28 a month) with a moment of silence and focused breathing.
