I started consistently practicing yoga in 2010 with the hopes of creating a more balanced life. During that time, I was starting a new career as a lawyer while fumbling her way through the early years of motherhood. Once I committed to weekly yoga classes, though, I began to notice a difference in the way I treated my clients, my family and myself. Yoga gave me a way to navigate my life by orienting all the moving parts around my practice and providing some much-needed stability.

Seeking to advance my own practice, I completed a 200-hour Vinyasa Krama certification at YogaLove in Yardley, PA in 2012. Shortly before teacher training ended, I learned I was expecting my second daughter. I began teaching while pregnant and was inspired to earn my Prenatal Yoga certification through A New Light Yoga & Wellness in 2014.

I have taken additional trainings in meditation, the subtle body, hands-on-assists, anatomy & physiology, restorative yoga, yoga philosophy, yoga therapy and Ayurveda. I also regularly commit to sadhanas under the direction of my teachers. I am currently working towards my 500-hour certification through Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy.

I consider myself a householder (a yoga practitioner grounded in the responsibilities of marriage, home and family) and weave my practice around the roles of partner, provider and caretaker. As a teacher, I seek to hold space for students to dig deep into their own practices and discover ways yoga can serve them in their lives.

In addition to teaching, I am also a practicing attorney focused on proving business support to holistic professionals.
