My first yoga teacher was at my gym in high school. She was kind and gentle and would read us poetry in Savasana. It was exactly what I needed. Over the years I have fallen deeper in love with the practice and find Yoga to be a refuge for stress and anxiety. In yoga, I can practice both movement and stillness, playing along the edge of exertion and relaxation. Somewhere in between I find my center. Yoga  provides me the space to build a better relationship with my breath, my body, my self.

In 2016, I attended the 200 hour Teacher Training at The Bhaktishop. The program helped me understand my responsibility to others in this world and to accept this role rather than shy away. I am honored to share the practices that have transformed my life with my students. I continue to study and practice at The Bhaktishop taking workshops and classes. This last year I have been learning more about the Franklin Method and I am fascinated with how understanding anatomy helps me find ease in my own body. I am eternally grateful to my teachers Ali Wesley, Monicka Koneski, Lisa Mae Osborn, and Danielle Hanna.
