My first memory of seeing Yoga was watching my mom practice postures while I held Rachel Carr’s “Be a Frog, a Bird, or a Tree” book. Later, I tried gentle asana and my first (slightly embarrassing) Lion’s Roar with my college roommate’s “Dixie Carter’s Un-Workout” on VHS. I recall feeling healthier and brighter, and soon the lighthearted yet grounded practice changed my perception of reality and sense of self.

Since I’m a bit of an “Anatomy Nerd” and happiest when I’m helping people feel more balanced and relaxed, I became a licensed Massage Therapist in 2005. As a full time massage practitioner, I discovered that leading breath-work during massage facilitated a deeper awareness for my clients and their body/mind connection.

In 2017, after recovering from major pelvic surgery, Yoga became an essential tool for my self-care. Motivated to continue to teach others how to link breath with movement to encourage self-healing, I completed a 230hr Veda Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with Allison Dennis at Heart of Yoga in 2018.

I will forever be a student of yoga and feel fortunate to have exceptional teachers such as Allison Dennis, Prem Sadasivananda, K. Sridhar, and Edwin Bryant. I am a lover of Sanskrit and harmonium, Bhakti, Thai massage, and Reiki and have a fascination with Vedic astrology and Ayurveda.

During my yoga classes, you can expect me to lead gentle asana while holding a safe and nurturing environment — with cheerfulness and a few giggles!
