Yoga has been a foundational tool to my healing and well-being, and so it seemed natural to incorporate it into my passion for influencing personal and collective well-being through healing, restoration, empowerment, and community building. I believe in our inter-dependance, not only that we all have an innate need to feel connected, but that no matter how independent we think we are, or strive to be, we all need each other to survive and to grow and to prosper.
While I believe that yoga is powerfully sacred, I also think that it should be accessible to anyone and everyone. I love teaching students new to yoga, especially those who think they aren't flexible enough, strong enough, or just "yogi" enough. It doesn't matter to me if you've never heard of yoga or even if we speak the same language, we can get our yoga on and have great fun doing it! I also love teaching in alternative venues (parks, breweries, coffee shops, offices), where yoga may feel less intimidating and where it can empower a burgeoning community.
I teach primarily Hatha Yoga, but also play with Vinyasa, Restorative, Gentle, partner yoga, and more.
Meditation and breathing practices (pranayama) are incorporated into most of my classes, but I also love to teach them in a class on their own. These practices can be done by anyone, anywhere, at any time, and so they are central to my self-care workshops, stress management trainings, and trauma-resiliency trainings.
