I first became interested in yoga after a series of accidents left me with debilitating spinal injuries. I earned my first yoga certification in 2003, and have had a full yoga teaching schedule since 2005. In 2011, I took my 200-hour teacher training under Ganga White and Tracy Rich at White Lotus Foundation, and after earning that certification, became a registered yoga teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance.
I wholeheartedly believe consistent yoga practice promotes healing, as evidenced by my personal experience with injury as well as a one-time dependence on prescription pain medications. My teaching combines a variety of yoga styles, with special emphasis on evolving the mind-body connection through use of breathing techniques and breath-synchronized movement (vinyasa). I am committed to making yoga accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels, helping them to manage stress, increase in strength and flexibility, and correct muscular and structural imbalances. Using props and offering modifications as needed, it is the goal of every class to make my students' yoga experience a truly positive one.
