My love for Yoga + meditation started long before I ever even owned a Yoga mat. As a young child, I was fulfilled at the beach or in the forests. I grow up with a sincerity for simplicity + stillness. It is my joy to share the wisdom + practicality that's Yoga has freely given me.
My journey to becoming a teacher was born out of growing up an athlete. When I was 23 I began avidly taking Yoga classes from an Iyengar based teacher in New Jersey. At this small obscure studio, I studied the Yoga Sutras in depth over a 9 month period along with advanced asanas. At that time (early 2000s) there were little if any teacher trainings in my area. When I expressed my interest in teaching Yoga, my teacher took me under her wing at no cost + taught me how to teach. I then proceeded to teach at her studio followed by Integral Yoga Hatha I teacher training at Satchidananda Ashram- Yogaville in Buckingham Virginia. I am also a student / practitioner of Reiki, (Certified level I and II) and Feng Shui.
