I have a mantra:Share abundance in life!
I know the universe has plenty to offer; and I am passionate about teaching how to live an inspired and healthy life in a way that is both fun and meaningful. I have had some of the greatest teachers in the world (see photos). I am a certified Yoga Instructor, Yoga Nidra Facilitator and Reiki Master. My writings have been featured in Yoga Journal, Shape, Yogi Times, Tathaatsu and Wisdom Magazine.
In addition to presentations at yoga studios & Yoga Journal Conferences, I help health, wellness and yoga organizations offer teachings that create a positive impact on individual lives. I regularly lead workshops on yoga and Yoga Nidra and have taught in the U.S., Europe and South America. Here are a few testimonials from participants about their experiences:
Yoga Studio Owners
Terrific experience. I am so happy I found you!
Thank you for sharing your gifts with my students and myself.
The workshops gave everyone exactly what they needed.
I have heard from three separate students who attended.
Two who attended both sessions the first day have felt the health
issues that they had almost gone for one and completely gone for the other.

I loved the Yoga Nidra workshop. I was able to experience healing from
a severe cold almost instantaneously and I intend to make Yoga Nidra
a part of my practice at least twice a week.

Yoga and Yoga Nidra Workshops
Outstanding workshop that incorporated the practical aspects of
Yoga Nidra with the experiential aspects. The best Yoga Nidra I have ever had.
Bill is an extraordinary teacher and I would attend any workshop he does.
I could give you a hug! I felt very much tapped into my higher self
through intention setting and Yoga Nidra. I know that this is my
true being and it is beautiful.
My son has been so excited about being able to stretch out and not hurt.
You have made a world of difference in him and he really enjoys you
and the time you spent with him. He made his goal of lifting 250 lbs.
Mother of 15 year old yoga student
The truth I have discovered today is that divine energy is all around me
and the universe is full of it, and I have this within me.
Mark McGinley, MD
The workshop increased my awareness and educated me to the energy
of Yoga Nidra. It reminds me to stop the insanity, and that I do have a choice.
I absolutely loved your class! I enjoyed learning more about my
inner self and the power within me. Sunday afternoon I played
your CD. It was like being in your class again and I will definitely
use it every week. I love the sense of well being I feel afterwards.
Yoga Nidra will now be a part of my practice. Thank you!
Extremely powerful for me.
Mary Matarazzo, Yoga Instructor Centennial Colorado
Relaxing, inspiring, creative, balancing. Good pace.
I enjoyed the Intention exercises. Identifying sources of stress,
fears and setting my intention. I felt it is very valuable in making
positive change to overcome those fears, and I feel much more
present and at peace.
I enjoyed learning the interconnection of my being and
how it is tied to the smallest thoughts or emotions.
San Francisco, CA
I enjoyed the energy work. Thank you!
I loved the workshop. It reinforced many concepts, ideas and
feelings I know about the chakras.
I feel peaceful, grounded and accepting...

Yoga Nidra is the most profound way to meditate that I have ever experienced.
It leaves me with a sense of calm and joy that gives me lasting clarity.
I can see the difference Yoga Nidra makes in my daily life, with less stress,
an ease in my relationships, and a strong connection with my inner being.
Learning Yoga Nidra has completely turned my life around. Problems I had battled for years just melted away. Yoga Nidra is magic. I am more relaxed and at ease with everyone and every situation I encounter.
Balancing Your Chakras Workshop
I found meaning doing poses that expand each chakra.
Learning about my energy body is an area I am just opening to.
This is exciting!
Feeling energized, feeling calmed within myself in this workshop.
You inspired me to work more with my chakras as a tool to
enliven and drive my life towards my true self and passions.
The exercises we did were really interesting and revealed much I did not previously know.
I loved the smudging ceremony and I feel very light and free. I love the complete balance I feel now at the completion of the workshop.
I enjoyed the grounding meditation with the roses!
Saint Simons Island, GA
Incredible, healing and enlightening.

I was completely moved on a number of levels. I am new to all of this but intuitively knew I was ready for something I haven’t experienced.
Teresa Shore, San Francisco, CA
Fabulous! Great to experience the chakras and learn ways to balance them.
Kelly Muller, Denver, CO
I loved the pace and the exercises. It helpe d me feel the variations of the energy. I experienced the ajna point in a very expanded manner, and thanks for the smudging.

The space and time to experience my own energy and the energy of others was lovely. Thank you for sharing your energy with us!
