I teach yoga classes at the Tehama Family Fitness Center, a large fitness facility just north of the Dignity Health Hospital (St. Elizabeths), in Red Bluff.
I have taught yoga, qigong, and tai chi Chuan in Red Bluff since 2000. Here are my qualifications.
I teach the Yoga and Qigong class on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
