About Me 

As a dancer and choreographer, yoga was always one of those movement arts I was somewhat aware of but had never tried. The first time I was invited to Om I gracefully declined. The next time I experienced yoga was right before going on stage when the choreographer led us through a series of sun salutations. In that moment, it struck me that I had never felt so calm and strongly connected to the surrounding cast members before.

Fast forward to just a few years ago when I returned to yoga while struggling with a life-changing event–infertility. During those difficult times, the restorative powers of the asana and meditation practices brought me a sense of inner peace, understanding of self, and acceptance of situations outside of my control. 

Joseph Campbell’s words resonated with me then as they do now: “We must be willing to give up the life we planned to live the life we are given.”

Going into yoga teacher training with Hot Asana Yoga University, I had no expectations beyond wanting to gain a better understanding of the eight-limbed path. I graduated with the desire to share the healing effects of yoga with anyone willing to roll out a mat and share their practice with me. I strive to create inviting, accessible and fun classes with the hope students will step off their mats feeling refreshed, calm and a sense of bliss.
