Without a doubt, teaching Yoga is a gift I am compelled to share with my fellow men and women.  From the very beginning, this journey evolved effortlessly, from finding the money for my teaching certification to coming up with limitless ideas for my classes, where no two classes are the same.   My approach to teaching is "user friendly and hands on" which allows for both, the very beginner and the more advanced student, to be challenged.  My classes flow with attention on full deep breathing, creating the connection of breath to movement, while still emphasizing proper alignment.  For me, Yoga is not just a practice, but a lifestyle.  Yoga means to "unite" or “create balance”.  Practicing Yoga every day provides me with the tools to create balance in my everyday life.  When my body and mind are balanced, optimal health and creativity flow into this amazing life I'm living!

Soon, she found herself doing the same for friends and family and loving it. In 2002, Tifany launched Gourmet Invitations, and it has grown more quickly than she ever could have dreamed.
