come together as a community, to practice and to learn how yoga fits in your life.

 
 

teaching philosophy

I'm an athlete at heart and a yogi by choice.  I believe that the body was built for movement.  I believe that the mind-body connection is a strong tool no matter what your yoga, fitness or life goals are.  And I believe it all starts and ends with a good foundation of body awareness and appreciation for mindful movement. 

 

As a teacher, my job is to educate and guide you into your own authentic practice.  The rest is all you. 

 
 
 

Background, focus and style

I have been in the running and fitness world for about six years now as a personal trainer and running coach.  After leaving my legal career, I worked in marketing for several outdoor and fitness brands.  Working with those brands lead me to working with athletes, which eventually lead me to teaching yoga in 2016. 

 

Since receiving my RYT200 certification from CorePower Yoga in 2016, I have taught at multiple studios, led workshops and focused a lot of my energy on working with the athlete community use yoga as a training tool. I completed my 500 hour certification with Jason Crandell at Love Story Yoga in 2018 and am currently taking continuing education in the areas of breathwork, alignment, and reiki. My teaching and sequencing is based on a foundation of safe alignment with an anatomical focus. I usually take a few moments to educate in my public classes about how you are using your body in each pose and why we are doing it.  But that being said, with my background in dance, I am drawn to a strong flow matched to music in my public classes. no matter where you practice with me, you will challenge your mind and body with healthy alignment guided by on nuanced cues to awaken all parts of the body in creating that deep connection with mindfulness of functional movement.
