Chronic neck issues led me to try yoga in 2002, and after my very first class I was hooked - I had never felt so energized and relaxed at the same time. In 2007 I used all the things I’d learned from my yoga practice – deep breathing, relaxation, strength, and flexibility (physical and mental)– to deal with my breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. That experience fueled my interest in becoming a yoga teacher and I completed a 2-year, 800+ hour training Program in 2011, led by Charlotte Ranz based on the Vanda Scaravelli/Esther Myers style. I've continued my studies through workshops with Duke Integrative Medicine, Judith Hanson Lasater, and Dr. Baxter Bell.
I enjoy teaching people who have never tried yoga before, as well as working with those who want to move deeper in their practice. After experiencing first-hand the many benefits of yoga, I find it a great joy serve as a guide for students to find their own “aha!” moment as they learn from their bodies.
There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.
