Yoga Instructor &
Certified Sound Bath Practitioner
“In my 20+ years of teaching, I have had the opportunity to reach a great variety of students—from preschoolers, to seniors and everyone in between. Yoga is the only practice that meets every one of those students right where they are. It is the great equalizer. And an amazing tool for self-awareness. In my personal practice, yoga has been there for me through physical and emotional highs and lows. My mat is always my soft spot to land. And that is the greatest gift I can share.”
A Bit About Me
I began practicing yoga in 2001, during my career as a personal trainer and fitness instructor. Rather quickly, I realized that yoga was more than just another exercise class, propelling me into a deeper personal practice, teacher trainings and a growing desire to share yoga with others.
My teaching style blends the subtle therapeutic practice of SomaYoga with a strong Vinyasa flow. I love introducing beginners of all ages and abilities to yoga and its benefits and am adept at offering options for all levels. My classes are welcoming, heart-lead and honest (and may include an inversion or two!). My goal is to move students through a thoughtful practice with a positive message—encouraging greater self-awareness, empowerment and peace through the practice of yoga.
I am also a Certified Sound Bath Practitioner, using the tools of sound/vibration to create a deeper experience in both yoga classes and full sound bath experiences.
