Having privately and publicly teaching individuals and groups of all ages dance, movement and physical fitness since 1976, Pamela became fascinated with yoga as an intriguing source of gaining more insight and knowledge of the wonders of the human potential. She began integrating the poses, breathing, relaxation, concentration and meditation techniques in her daily discipline, and with her privates clients. In1980, She began teaching yoga formally in yoga studios and sports gyms in the San Francisco Bay Area.
In 1989, she took her personal training business to new heights by creating a mindful fitness program, Body Awareness, instructing people through workshops and one-on-one instruction how to use the power of the mind to create health and lasting well being, long before the popular mind body connection trend.
Pamela had the Body Awareness business until 1999, when she founded and established the San Francisco Yoga School, a private studio in her home, where she continues to teach classes, workshops and see private clients. In 2018, the SFYS celebrates its 19th anniversary!
Also in 2018, Pamela happily announces and celebrates 41+ years of integral professional teaching experience and personal study, training and daily practice!

"Using our body as a metaphor as how we live our lives, our body can be a reflection of our inner beauty and creativity. It is not just what we can do, but how we do it that is essential and makes the biggest difference. It is about the quality of the movement and pose, instead of attaining some incredible physical feat. It is about accepting where we are in our bodies, and moving forward from that sense of grace strength and ease, creating a stable foundation to grow, build and expand upon." - PC
