In pursuit of a path to manage stress, I began taking yoga classes in 2001. As yoga became an integral part of my life, life’s challenges were handled with more ease. The practice of yoga continues to be an awakening for me. My movement on the mat is an instrument to the present moment, self-acceptance, and inner peace.
Eager to share the gifts of yoga, I completed my 200-hour training in 2016. Drawing from both my background in yoga and psychology, my classes focus on the integration of posture, mindfulness, meditation, philosophy and breath. My overall goal is not only to help students grow physically stronger, but to become more self-compassionate and empowered beings.
Complementing my work as a yoga instructor, I work as a mental health counselor in private practice. I truly enjoy helping others find personal meaning and resilience on and off the mat. In my free time, you’ll find me kicking it with my family of 5, reading, writing, laughing, reflecting, hiking, and hugging my two lab mixes.
