Trained in 2006 at Om Shanti Yoga with Lillian Leon, I then taught through college and continued my training in 2010 with Jennifer Yarro of Frog Lotus Yoga. My classes are meant to be functional for all types of practitioners, as they are layered and multi-tiered. All classes are also meant to be an exploration of what the body and mind can do together. Serving my local community with compassion, humor and matter-of-factness, (Did you know the yoga we practice today resembles little to none of the yoga practiced 3500 years ago? BAM! Mind-blown!! You're welcome.) I hope to create an atmosphere where ambition is replaced by curiosity.
This doesn't mean I won't help you drop into deep place, physical or non-physical, that allows you to explore YOUR yoga safely and intelligently (because that's what it is, YOUR practice.). My teaching style has been described as "intuitively-paced, respectful of all bodies, playful, judgment-free, and exuberant."
By day I teach preschool, and by nights and weekends I am a graduate student, Women's Circle Leader () and compulsive list-maker. Inspired to strengthen my hands-on assists, I completed Thai Massage Levels 1 and 2 with Jennifer, and continue to assist the summer Teacher Training program at Frog Lotus Yoga. I am continually honored to be able to serve as a friendly guide in all of these capacities and look forward to learning from you, too!
Also, if you make it to class, ask for the very ancient pose called hugasana. You won't regret it.
