Before 1996, June was completely immersed in a career of management, leadership, and teaching. She started practicing and studying yoga in 1996 as a method of managing the demands of a career-focused life.
After the birth of her second son, she became an at-home mom. Again, yoga was the great equalizer in balancing the demands of motherhood and serenity. Having experienced the benefits of yoga in her daily life, June realized that sharing this experience with others was her dharma, as well as her passion.
She received her 200- and 500-hour Teacher Training certification through the Himalayan Institute Teacher Association (HITA). She has also been studying yoga as therapy for healing and preventing injuries. In 2011, she studied Prenatal/Post Natal Yoga. Currently, she teaches and runs the Himalayan Institutes’ 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Moondog.
June has been practicing since 1996 and teaching yoga since 2005.
June’s belief in the transformative power of yoga fuels her dharma. “The changes in my life from yoga have been profound, and I want to share it.” She believes that everyone can benefit from yoga, and is passionate about finding new ways to make yoga accessible to all. “When someone comes into the studio, I feel so honored, because they are saying ‘Of all the places that I could be, and all the things I could do, I choose to be here.’” She has created an amazing, beautiful community and space at Moondog, where all are encouraged to find their yogic path.
June says her family is her greatest accomplishment, and she enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons. In general, she likes anything involving sun and sand, and is always open to trying things that are new, different, and fun.
