Adapting traditional wisdom teachings for modern times, I inspire people to live healthier, more wholehearted lives, through Ayurveda, yoga, and meditation.
I began practicing yoga and meditation in 1996 and have been teaching since 2000. My yoga teaching draws from the Krishnamacharya lineage, having completed teacher trainings in Alignment, Ashtanga, and Therapeutic Yoga. I am registered with Yoga Alliance at the 500-E level and at the 1000-hour level through the International Association of Yoga Therapists. My primary teachers are Scott Anderson and Michael Stone.
My classes integrate meditation and a mindful approach to asana that brings attention to anatomy, corrective exercises, optimal alignment, breath, and inner awareness. This practice cultivates abounding health in body and mind while inspiring you to live a more grounded and compassionate life. If you prefer an individual or therapeutic approach, my private yoga lessons address the intricacies of adapting the practice to honor individual needs and health concerns.
I am the Assistant Director and a lead instructor for Alignment Yoga’s teacher training programs. I offer a variety of trainings, workshops, and retreats, both locally and abroad. Additionally, I am a licensed massage therapist specializing in Neurovascular and Aroma Acupoint Therapy. My studies continue in Ayurveda, India’s science of longevity and health. I am currently enrolled in Kripalu’s School of Ayurveda and also have had the privilege of studying with Dr. Robert Svoboda and Dr. Claudia Welch.
I have a deep love for travel, local food, and spending time with my pitbull Lucy.
I look forward to working together.
