Welcome to OhmWorks!
I am often asked what “OHMWorks” means. Since my initials are OHM, I tacked “works” onto them when I began working from home – a play on “home work” as well as om, the sound chanted in many yoga and meditation classes. Below is some information about OHMWorks:
- Putting the “om” in OHMWorks. My first deck, The Yoga Deck, allowed me to combine my love of yoga with my love of writing. Its successful “yoga-in-a-box” format led to other decks: The Stretch Deck, The Prenatal Yoga Deck, The Yoga Deck II, The Feng Shui Deck (co-authored with Sheryll Hirschberger), The Chakra Deck, and The Fitness Ball Deck. Essential Yoga, a hatha yoga reference book, was recently published and a new deck, The Healthy Back Deck, is in the works. Click on any of the icons above to learn more.
- Just breathe. Several years ago I was asked to lead a yoga session at a conference. Knowing it might be challenging to do yoga with folks wearing “going to meeting” clothes and representing different physical abilities, I led the session using simple yet effective breathing exercises, stretches and postures from my yoga and stretch decks. That evolved into Stress Buster workshops for organizations and conferences, helping participants de-stress, feel rejuvenated and refreshed…anywhere, anytime.

- Copyeditor for hire. Okay, I’ll admit it. I love to proofread and copyedit. Like someone who knits to relax, I enjoy finding typos. I’m available to write and proof copy, as well as to write brochures, newsletters and reports. I am also the editor Why Don’t Woodpeckers Get Headaches – and Other Questions About Birds You Know You Want to Ask (Beacon Press).
