“I’ve always had a passion for the healing arts and first began botanical studies in 1995 to become a herbal healer. It wasn’t long before my desire to inspire others toward better health brought me to the transformative modality of yoga. My journey of self-discovery through yoga has not always been an easy one. Trouble with body image and an eating disorder caused me deep challenges but through all of them, I have been able to love and continue to heal myself through yoga. My passion is to empower all yogi/nis to become even healthier and truly embrace their shapes through yoga and meditation.
My teaching style is spirited, non-dogmatic and dynamic, invoking my many different experiences in life and various styles of yoga. I gear my classes toward healing and detoxing the body, raising confidence and creativity, and focusing the mind through movement, breath and meditation. My students are challenged to practice in their lives what they practice on their mat and to start where they are.”
