Helen’s interest in wellness brought her to yoga over 15 years ago. She discovered that yoga is a powerful tool for transformation. Yoga became a lifetime journey. The desire to share her passion for yoga with others brought Helen to Kripalu School of Yoga. She completed Kripalu yoga teacher training in June 2013 and started teaching in July 2013.

Helen strongly believes that a regular yoga practice can help us achieve and maintain optimal health. She loves guiding and inspiring students on a path of a non-judgmental self-exploration.
