Pamela Ferner

After a career committed to access in education, my attention has shifted to yoga, to healing, and all that connects to working from the inside out. Now a RYT500 and certified Yoga Tune Up® instructor, I studied hatha, pranayama, Ayurveda and yoga philosophy through Ahimsa Yoga, and practiced meditation both at the Dai Bosatsu Zendo and with Aaron Dias. This is a different type of hard work :).

Peggy Stevens

Peggy and her standard poodle, Pink
Peggy started out as a banker and tax accountant.  After years of 4 inch heels and long hours of sitting, she realized in her late 50s early 60s that her passion was helping people age gracefully.  The most glaring example for her was watching her mother age.  Looking at her photo gallery you will see the photographic evidence of the difficult aging process experienced by her mom.  At 40 and 70 they were still the same height.  By the time her mother moved in with Peggy and her family around the time she turned 90, her mother had shrunk to below Peggy's shoulder.
