Yoga has been a part of my life for twenty years. Through yoga, I have found a sense of home in my own body and experienced the emotional
and energetic benefits of the practice. I teach to create a nurturing and empowered space so others can find the same health & happiness.
Influenced by a variety of modern vinyasa forms and a life-long love of movement, I lead classes with an emphasis on alignment, strength, and breath.
This translates to a practice and teaching style that is both strong and graceful, challenging and uplifting. I believe every day and every practice is an opportunity to refine the balance between effort and ease allowing us to become more vital & serene and master the gift of living in the present moment.
Forever a student, I began my practice while in college at The Ohio State University first studying Hatha Yoga.
That was the match that lit the flame for my love of the practice, not only for the movement but also as I witnessed the many benefits off the mat.
My vocation of choice as a publicist post-college led me to be a storyteller for luxury brands in retail and hospitality for many years,
but it is the ability to reframe the stories in the minds of my students as a yoga teacher that I find most rewarding.
My formalized training includes 200-Hour PURE YOGA at Equinox Sports Clubs
studying with Amy Leydon, Dan Steel, and Renee Le Blanc.
I continually seek inspiration and attend training intensives and retreats held throughout the world.
