Sign Language Interpreters
Yoga tools to prevent and reduce pain and establish a sustainable and long career
Welcome. Bienvenue. Bienvenido.🤟
You found it! I'm so glad you are here!!
This is a space and a community to address YOUR needs as an interpreter.
You work so hard and often it seems like there is no time to take care of your body. From my personal experience, I have found a yoga practice the only way I've been able to do this work for almost 30 years.
I want to share that with you.
I want to help you avoid the pitfalls I did in finding a yoga practice that actually helped and didn't hurt.
I want to share the practice that has helped me weather the stresses of interpreting and life and extol the benefits of consistent practice. After more than 20 years of study and practice, yoga is not just a fad or a passing interest instead, I have a wealth of personal and studied knowledge to share with and empower you. I know this method helps interpreters prevent dis-ease from stress and injury.
I was lucky. When I started interpreting, I was in immediate pain. Why is that luck?! Because I didn't have to wait until the damage was irreparable or I was stuck in my ways. Instead, it forced me to search and finally found yoga.
Not all yoga methods are the same and not all know and understand your body and the needs of an interpreter. I do and my passion is to help all interpreters have a practice that ensures less pain, less stress, and no burnout.

Before I found yoga, I suffered from repeitive strain and all sorts of aches and pains mostly from my work as an interpreter.
I have been RID certified since the mid-90's and have worked in San Fran, NYC and now VRI from my home in Mexico.
I have been teaching yoga for more than 15 years and hold a level 3 certification in Iyengar yoga as well as certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists. I study regularly in India and with teachers from the Institute in Pune, India. I have dedicated my life to this practice.
And now, I want to share the benefits I've experience with a community near and dear to my heart -Sign Language Interpreters. Not all ways that yoga is done today is good for us. In fact, I tore my rotator cuff practicing yoga before I started to really study it and boy, this was no fun! I want to share the tools of yoga with you to help you have a better working and personal life. And I want to help you with your practice. I want you to be out of pain,avoid pain and have a healthy happy career.
