I began practicing yoga in 2000 as a means to reduce stress and get a good stretch post-run. Very quickly yoga became so much more than I could have imagined. To deepen my personal practice and explore teaching, I completed a 200 hour Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training program in 2016 and 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 the practice of yoga 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.
