I came to the practice of yoga after over 10 years as a C.D.T.A. competitive dancer. After major surgery in 2004 left me unable to resume my journey in the dance world, I landed in a yoga studio in university and continued exploring the art of kinesthetic movement.

After receiving my 200hr. yoga teacher certification, I went on to study with such inspirational teachers as Bo Forbes (Restorative Yoga for Emotional Balance)Tiina Veer (Yoga for Round Bodies)Nadine Saxton (Craniosacral)Monica Voss (Pre- and Post-Natal Yoga), Susi Hately, and the resonant Elena Brower. Along with these styles, I specialize in teaching yoga for children and teens, pre- and post-natal yoga, seniors, and bigger bodies, as well as chair/office yoga and yoga for those recovering from major surgery or undergoing interventions, like chemotherapy and radiation.

I am p
assionate about radical self-love and have been a Community Partner with the Yoga and Body Image Coalition since 2015. We are yoga teachers . practitioners, experts, educators, activists, writers, artists, non-profit organizers and advocates. We promote optimal well-being and healthy body relationships through a consistent yoga practice, including physical asana, meditation, and beyond. We are committed to creating safe spaces for bodies of all types, devoid of body shaming, while offering a comprehensive body image education for yoga teachers, community and media outlets.

In 2016, I became certified as an "Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher" with the Yoga Alliance after teaching well over 1,000 hours of yoga. As a result, I was able to begin working with a local Registered Yoga School co-facilitating 200hr. and 500hr. Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher training programs. Navigating students through the waters from practitioner to teacher has been an incredibly affirming and fulfilling experience as I funnel all of my experience and trainings into lessons for the next generation of yoga teachers. 

I believe in living life bravely, from a place of authenticity. I am passionate about creating space for community and evolving together through an constant cycle of seeking, knowing and contributing. I believe that it is a sense of belonging that allows us to compassionately uncover our true purpose and, with our tribe acting as our ever-present lighthouse, we can cement this purpose as the foundation for every choice we make.
