My yoga practice started in the beginning of 2012 at Take Yoga Glenshaw and fell in love. I continued on to teacher training with Tias Little at Prajna Yoga, Santa Fe during the summer of 2013. A common focus across my classes is building poses from the ground up whether that means starting with the feet, hands, head, back, or belly - whatever part is touching the mat and supporting the body! Fun, safety, patience, and a willingness to try are pertinent to both my personal practice and the classes I lead. I continue learning from my fellow teachers, taking classes as often as I can. I have completed a 200 hour teaching program and plan to continue my education at any and all times that I can. "Off the mat" I groom dogs, tutor math (certified in secondary mathematics), acroyoga, and spend time with my many animals, close friends, and family.
