I see my role as that of a guide and encourage students to trust their intuition. I think one of the most amazing parts of yoga is its ability to connect us with our inner teachers.

Yoga has been a huge part of my life for the past 7 years. Through playful asana and many relaxing savasanas, yoga has taught me to not take myself so seriously and reminded me to slow down at times. I think this is one of the most amazing things about yoga: its ability to connect us with our inner teachers.

I encourage a mindful practice with a focus on alignment and integrating breath with movement. My classes blend power with playful movements and offer a balance of strength and ease. I see my role as more of guide than a “teacher” and encourage students to trust their intuition.   As such, I offer a class that is suitable for all levels of practitioners.

When I’m not on the mat, I like to spend as much time outdoors as I can.  Whether I’m strolling along the river with my dog or spending the day at the crag, being in nature always inspires me.
