My lifelong study of movement has taken me on an incredible journey from dance and competitive sports to a career as an Interdisciplinary Movement Professional. My background includes working in the fitness industry as a personal trainer, group fitness instructor, fitness education specialist and boutique studio owner. I’ve also trained in and teach Aerial Arts, TRX, Mat Pilates, Self Myofascial Release techniques and dance-fitness. My yoga teacher training and twenty+ year yoga practice is deeply rooted in alignment based Vinyasa, with an emphasis on Ashtanga, Iyengar and Baptiste lineages and I’ve completed much of my yoga training within these ancient yogic traditions. In addition to completing a 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training in Hatha + Hot Power Vinyasa, I’ve also completed my YogaWorks 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training and devoted an additional 200 hours of study to Yin Yoga. I completed my Professional 300-hr Yoga Teacher Training at Down Under School of Yoga, under the guidance of Natasha Rizopoulos, accompanied by some of Boston's best veteran yoga teachers. Including Barbara Benagh, Claire Este McDonald, Gregor Singleton, Masaaki Okamura, Justine Wiltshire Cohen, Larisa Foreman, Kate Robinson, Nicole Clark & Kate O’Donnell, among others. I also completed my Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training at Down Under School of Yoga with Bec Conant of Om Births, Kate Robinson and Dina Abbondante and trained in Restorative Yoga with Judith & Lizzie Lasater, Jillian Pranksy and Cyndi Lee. In addition, I completed Meditation Teacher Training with David Nicthern, a Senior Teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist Lineage and completed 100-hours of evidence-based Mindfulness training; including training with Mindful Schools and Little Flower Yoga. I compliment my work in movement as a professional in Reiki, Thai Bodywork and Sound Healing and offer Crystal Bowl Meditation workshops and Sound Baths throughout New England. I am dedicated to helping my students build strength, improve flexibility, restore and maintain balance, while moving freely and without pain. I draw upon my diverse background to deliver classes that are not only safe and effective for the body and a compassionate journey inward, but also empowering and light-hearted; as a reminder to practitioners to enjoy the journey while nurturing heart, mind and body. As a lifelong learner and an observer of Svadhyaya, I’m engaged in regular self-study, and I’m often in pursuit of educational opportunities that support my multidisciplinary teaching toolbox.
