In 2001 I took my first yoga class and fell in love. It was the beginning of a long road of healing the disconnect between me and my body; one which I am still traveling daily. I am passionate about bringing the profound gift of yoga to as many people as possible. I am trained in the Integrative Yoga Therapy tradition (RYT-200) which utilizes pranayama, mudra and asana to facilitate balance at the physical, energetic, psycho-emotional, intuitive and spiritual levels. My teaching is also influenced by my studies with teachers such as Shiva Rhea, Bo Forbes and Anodea Judith. I believe that yoga is for every body and I seek to provide compassionate instruction that encourages students to discover their own unique experience of yoga in inspiring, enjoyable, safe and easily accessible ways for all who walk into my class.
