About the Author

Here are a few details that qualify me to speak to you about all the topics in this work. I have been in a sober support system since 1970 with a family member. I "cut my teeth" in the rooms of recovery and my home was always filled with the slogans and "Grapevine" magazines, people detoxing and learning how to live their lives again. It wasn't until 11 years ago that I realized all the learnings from my childhood needed to be put into practice in my own life. Knowing that this work was my life's purpose, I knew that I wanted more than just to be a "preacher," but I wanted to make a difference. That difference would require discipline. So at 6 years of sobriety, I went to college and trained to be a chemical dependency counselor. I have never known my recovery without yoga, I wanted to have the proven discipline to help to explain why I teach as I do. I joined and studied with the Curvy Yoga Movement and the 12 step Recovery Yoga movement and am a 200 Level Yoga Alliance member. Having a professional past as an adult educator for 21 years, certified in the "Growing Up Again" curriculum, midwife's assistant, doula, childbirth and lactation educator, massage practitioner, marketer, and COO have assisted me in developing this book and its strategies. The biggest reason that I want to share this information with you is my family. I was so lost in addiction and lost the hearts of my children. It is with gratitude that I tell you today, my family is mostly healed. We enjoy each other today and I am the proud single mom of 6 kids and a grandmother of 3. Each of the people in my family have done the work with me, for us to grow into the strong family we are today. I am grateful for the second chance I have been given. Also I am grateful for my spiritual life. I was raised a Christian who actually had no faith. Today I am a woman of faith. I can admit when I am crushed or scared and know that "God as I understand Him" is always there for me, sometimes He shows up in a meeting, sometimes in a person, sometimes in a quiet moment. Today, I am a simple woman and I work a simple program of recovery. Some of my best moments are with my dog Jagger, teaching yoga, and spending time with people in recovery. And to quote a surrogate dad of mine, life is so good and "You ain't seen nothing yet"!
