What do you like most about teaching yoga?:

I love sharing my passion for yoga with my students, No matter what level of yoga the students come in at, I love to encourage them and support them on their own yoga journey.


Teaching philosophy / describe your average class:

Since I do not take myself too seriously, I like to have fun in my classes. That being students will leave feeling energized yet relaxed, both physically and emotionally. My classes typically begin with breathing techniques and stretching, then we move thru a series of vinyasa flows building strength and endurance, and finally finish with relaxation, and often a meditation. I offer hands on adjustments, and always incorporate essential oils in savasana.

Training & Certifications:

200 Hour YTT in Feb 2017

What is your favorite pose?:

Pigeon Pose...!!! It allows me to really be in the present...breathing thru the uncomfortableness

Anything else you want to share:

As a Registered Dietitian, Holistic Health Coach, and Reiki Master, I have a passion for health and wellness. I believe that given the right tools (food, movement and love), our body has an amazing capacity to heal itself. Our bodies are always speaking to us...and yoga can help us to slow down and listen. I am always looking to the next travel adventure, and love experimenting with different cuisines.
