I was introduced to yoga in the early 90’s, on my mom's suggestion, to help with my "teen angst." I didn't know exactly what Yoga was then and I just put it in my weekly workout rotation. Over time, I learned that Yoga is much more than just a physical exercise and I deepened my knowledge by learning the history and philosophy behind this Amazing Science.

"Yoga can help you Navigate Life's Ups and Downs while Remaining Fully Present to Your Authentic Self."

Since then I have completed two 500-Hour Yoga Teacher Trainings, taught over 2500 hours and have been a member of the Yoga Alliance since 2006. I have created a 6-Disc DVD Yoga video set, hosted workshops, retreats and special events throughout the Southeast and West Coast and I am a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

I specialize in teaching private one-to-one Yoga lessons tailored to each individual student. I also offer Yoga Mentoring, Digital Yoga Recordings, Ayurveda Consultations, Group Classes, Workshops and Special Events.

"I want to Offer a Safe Space to Dive Deeper into a Relationship with Yourself and the World Around You."

I am a Yoga Student First and a Teacher Second and I still study under Gary Kraftsow, Mirka Kraftsow, and Leslie Kaminoff, as well as many other amazing and knowledgeable Yoga and Ayurveda teachers. I try to create a fun, peaceful, accessible and accepting environment where You can practice Yoga and have the confidence to take it off the mat. I believe Yoga is a way of life and is for EVERYBODY and with the Tools of Yoga you can discover the answers Inside of Yourself.

"Are you ready to Embrace Your Life and Have a Real Life Yoga Practice?"

Besides teaching Yoga, I am a mother, a wife, a sister, daughter and friend. I love to be outdoors camping, hiking, gardening and dancing. I love music, reading, hugging and great conversations. And with all of that, I understand how to scatter Yoga throughout my day to help me be My Best Self for those I love.

"Who says Yoga has to take 60 Minutes or More? Who says Yoga is done just on a Mat? Let me show you what I mean!"

I can't wait to meet you soon and support you on Your journey to Self Discovery.
