Ruth’s commitment to Yoga developed during her journey to recover from serious skiing injuries to both knees. That’s when she met Susan Merrill Larson and spent almost three years regularly in her classes. When Susan opened Asana Studio, she asked Ruth to join the staff. Since 2003, Ruth has been teaching classes at Asana Studio in addition to her classes at Clear Creek Recreation Department. Ruth has studied Iyengar Yoga, explored Anusara, finally becoming certified in Hatha Yoga as RYT-200. Her deep desire is to help yoga students expand their physical skills using yoga as cross-training, no matter their age or skill level. Yoga has provided the structure to unite Ruth’s lifelong study of health, wellness, and nutrition and she recognizes the role Yoga has played in the recovery (without surgery!) of her knee injuries.
