Shortly after the birth of my second child I was invited to take a Bikram Yoga class. This was my first “real” yoga experience. Needless to say, it was love at first breath! I am eternally grateful to my friends that brought me to yoga that day. The entire trajectory of life changed - because I simply said YES! I soon moved on to Power Vinyasa falling more in love with this practice.
Though having been an athlete and playing a wide variety of sports throughout life nothing spoke passionately to me the way yoga has. After finding yoga I felt as if I had just truly learned how to breathe. Yoga offers an outlet for removing stagnant energy, opening the heart and finding balance. It is a time to play, to let go, to get messy, to capture glimpses of the soul and to be FREE!
Continuing further in the journey I became RYT certified through Yoga Alliance upon completion of my first 200-hour training. I have experience teaching Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Yin, Meditation, Restorative, Hatha, Gentle, Special Needs, Kids, Family and Prenatal Yoga classes. I am an E-RYT teacher with over 1,000 teaching hours as well as a certified Kaiut, Yin and Life Time Fitness LifePower™ Yoga teacher. I serve as a Life Time Fitness YTT Faculty Member facilitating 200-hr teacher trainings for LifePower™ Yoga. (see TEACHER TRAINING page for more info).
I am inspired by the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, the rhythms of the universe, mother nature and LOVE. My goal as a teacher is to empower and support students while discovering their freedom through yoga in a loving, safe and nurturing space.
When not teaching, I keep busy as a mother to a beautiful son, daughter and french bulldog. I am a devoted yoga student that enjoys exploring the world with my husband and children, being outdoors, scuba diving, paddle boarding, creating, having new experiences and always saying YES to life.
