Contemplative practices such as journaling, movement, and ritual have been part of my life since I was a kid. The world I live in seems designed to keep me distracted; practices like Yoga are essential for me to keep living in alignment with my values and feeling alive, light-hearted, and connected.
In 2008 a back injury inspired me to deepen my Yoga practice to manage pain, build strength, and check my ego. In 2013 I completed a Yoga Teacher Training that included Ashtanga and Forrest styles. I’ve been teaching on and off since 2013, taking lots of breaks so I can continue learning and growing from the wise and varied Yoga communities I’ve had the honor of knowing.
I hope folks find my classes welcoming and challenging in just the right ways! My intention is that a Yoga practice inspires folks to take very good care of themselves so they can engage with the world with steadiness, clarity, and playful curiosity.
