"My journey into yoga awkwardly started back in high school when my friend and I came across her mom's fitness DVDs (this was back in the '90s) and we had no idea what we were doing! However, over the years I started attending classes at various studios and began to feel the benefits for my physical and mental health. By 2007 it had become part of my weekly routine; and my practice evolved in 2008 when I was pregnant with my first son -- I discovered a deeper connection with my baby and my changing body when I came to my mat. Prenatal yoga strengthened the bond between my son and I, and better prepared me for labor & delivery, which enlightened me on the benefits of this style of yoga.
Since then, I have embraced yoga through life's ups & downs as it always has a way of bringing harmony + flow to my life and connects me to my true Self. In 2015, an epic journey to Peru for a yoga retreat was the catalyst for my personal desire to become a yoga teacher, so that I could share these benefits with others. I completed my 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training back in 2016; and in the years that followed, I continued to dive deeper through an 85-hr Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Training, 50-hr Kids Yoga Training, 30-hr Yin Yoga Training, and 108hr Yogini Path Immersion.
Always a student, I continue to seek ways to expand my practice through workshops, courses, and maintaining a daily yoga + meditation practice. Each moment is an opportunity to learn, when we keep our minds + hearts open and connected to Divine Source. I bring in philosophical + spiritual elements to my guided sessions, as I truly believe yoga unites us on a level that surpasses the physical realm.
Drawn to the Earth elements I cue postures with reference to nature, and I prefer being outdoors whenever possible -- both on my mat and off, in daily living. I love being in spaces filled with the positive energy of other yogis, and am passionate about holding that space for others in the world."
