My classes are intuitive, playful and approachable. I love focusing on the foundations and guiding people back to feeling, because gawd knows we think way too much. I was originally trained in power vinyasa, but my own personal yoga journey led me to explore restorative, yin, nidra and iyengar. So, although vinyasa is my foundation I blend various aspects of different styles to create well rounded and balanced sequences. You will experience a bell curve of calm grounding, to flowing, and finally nervous system restoration. I am dedicated to making sure my classes are safe and feel good in each person's body.

what people are saying...

"I just wanted to thank you for making the video series "Yoga for Healing".  It has been a really great tool for me.  Your videos went at a perfect pace for me and made me feel proud of my body.  I really enjoyed the combination of meditation and movement. I love how you incorporated self love into the practice too.  Yoga is now an important part of my life and healing journey!  Thank you so much!!! The final video I watched was really powerful.  Visualizing energy in numb parts of my limbs was uncomfortable and also empowering.  I'm so grateful to have your videos as a resource and tool." -Jenn

"I loooove your program.  You super won me over (I believe it's session #4) when you said something about each day our practice looking different & basically being okay w/ that on days when you "feel like shit."  Hahahaha!  I'm totally into the real & genuine when it comes to a healing lifestyle.  Your frank words there completely impressed me. I also love the worksheets w/ each session.  The design, the information, the possible modifications, all of it shows so much attention to detail & real thoughtfulness about the folks buying your program.  I have to confess I don't love yoga, so enjoying this is a surprise for me & I think it has a lot to do with how you lead in the videos." -Angie
