For all of us, life is a journey filled with moments of frustration and joy.  And most of us struggle to live in the present moment.  You can be healthy, happy and strong in your mind, body and spirit.  Join me.

Yoga is so much more than a physical practice...it's an endless journey that can benefit anyone.  It does not matter why you chose yoga.  Maybe you want more flexibility and strength. Or you're curious about meditation and want to find a way to de-stress.  Could it help you manage a chronic condition or recover from a recent injury?  Was yoga recommended by a friend?  Or just maybe you hope to age more gracefully.  Whatever the reason, the practice of yoga can benefit anyone, at any age.  

My professional career is grounded in science, health and wellness. I have always been fascinated with the connection between body, mind and spirit.  

My degrees, certifications, and hands-on experience allow me to adapt to the needs of each individual - YOU!

  • 20+ years of experience in fitness and wellness
  • Yoga Certifications: E-200 RYT, 500 RYT, RCYT, Meditation, Yin, Yoga Nidra
  • Wellness Certifications: ACSM, CHES, Health Coach
  • Bachelors Degrees: Exercise Science and Health Promotion

AS a wife and mother of three beautiful children, I'm grateful for the opportunity to apply what I've learned.  In particular, striving to stay in the moment when life and schedules seem overwhelming!  But I continue to say YES to life and welcome the opportunities that challenge me, even when fear grips me tight. 

My passion is to continually explore all avenues that help me stay present, and walk through life with resilience and grace.  My personal journey allows me to share my kowledge, trianing and experience with my students and clients, young and old.  And in return, I learn from their challenges and experiences, which further enriches our journeys together.  As life unfolds, I continue to thrive on learning more in my pursuit of growth, explorationg and adventure.  I know you do to.
