As a massage therapist, yoga teacher, Reiki master, and certified MELT Method Instructor, I’ve loved sharing my passion for health & wellness with others since 2003. An experienced 500-hr certified yoga teacher, I enjoy connecting with students of all ages and abilities in a multitude of classes such as Ashtanga, vinyasa flow, hatha, beginners, yin, prenatal, Itsy Bitsy yoga, senior & chair yoga, and Laughter Yoga. Always a curious yogi and bodyworker, some of my specialty trainings include techniques for back care, yoga therapeutics, restorative yoga, pranayama (breath discovery), craniosacral therapy, myofascial & neurofascial release, and aromatherapy.
My style is alignment-based mindful movement in which students can develop a respectful relationship with the body, access new strength and space, and make discoveries. As a teacher and therapist believe it’s important to listen with an open heart, hold space in which one feels safe and free to explore, and to provide guidance in the direction of self-healing. My teaching style reflects a sincere concern for each student by promoting self-love and acceptance while encouraging students to challenge themselves. I invite students to take the practice off the mat, welcoming yoga, self-care, and wellness to be a part of everyday life.
