about

I began practicing yoga in 2000 and am amazed every day by its 'magic'.  To deepen my personal practice and explore teaching, I completed a 200 hour Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training program in 2016.  To further my knowledge and experience with the slow, grounding practice of Yin, I became certified in Yin Yoga in 2017.    

My classes infuse yogic philosophy, music and chanting, safe and gentle asana, breathwork, and meditation practices.  It is my mission to provide a supportive environment for yogis to learn and practice both the physical and mental techniques yoga offers.  I utilize the Universal Principles of Alignment, a sense of humor, the healing power of voice and music, and bold acceptance for all as we are, to ensure a safe and healthy space for students.

Yoga has supported me throughout the years through a variety of styles and levels.  This includes basics/beginners, hatha, vinyasa flow, therapeutics, gentle, restorative, yin yoga, corporate work based practices, as well as pranayama (breathing practices) and meditation classes.  It is a joy and privilege to share my personal yoga practice with yogis of all shapes, sizes, and ability.

I bow in gratitude to all my teachers - on and off the mat -

for their generous guidance, unwavering encouragement,

and their insistence that I am perfect as I am.
