In 1992, I was a sophomore in college and I found yoga. I fell in love with the practice. Over the years yoga became a source of physical, mental and emotional support, and growth for me. After working some years in the corporate world and having my four children, I began teaching vinyasa influenced classes out of my home to mother friends. With their encouragement, and the support of my family, I prepared to offer yoga to my community.
In 2009, I completed my first yoga training and began a path to learn as much as possible about yoga, herbal medicine, Ayurveda and various other wellness modalities. I am always studying. The natural world and its cycles, the joys of cooking, motherhood and gathering with friends and family are great inspirations to me and I bring these experiences to my teaching. My yoga journey includes Prana Flow, kundalini, restorative yoga, yoga nidra, Ayurveda and meditation. I'm honored to have studied with the brilliant and kind Ashley Litecky Elenbaas, Hannah Leatherbury, and Kathryn Templeton. I'm currently in mentorship programs with the wise Elena Brower and Claire Ragazzino and am pursuing a certificate for hormone health nutrition with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
My goal is to share yoga and nourishing practices with others and to do this authentically. I'm so thankful to all of my teachers and yoga sisters (you know who you are). To my dear and patient husband, four children, friends and students, thank you for your love--it is everything.
