I love Yoga - everything about it: the physical practice, the grounding, the challenge and the comfort, the way it focuses everything on the present, bringing together body, mind and spirit. I began teaching to share this love and appreciation for yoga with others. I had been dabbling in yoga for many years, but it wasn’t until I went to my first Vinyasa Flow class that I got hooked. There I was, after a lifetime of athletics, not even able to hold up my arms in Warrior 2 without shaking. The athleticism and challenge drew me in, and the spirituality and community have kept me there. Yoga can benefit everyone – whether you are on a spiritual quest or just want to touch your toes, the practice enhances lives on so many dimensions.

I completed the Moksha Yoga Teacher Training in 2008, and since then have continued to study with several Master teachers.  I currently teach Vinyasa Flow and Hot yoga.  I enjoy both practices because they are fun, creative, challenging, and allow each of us to move with our own breath while opening us up layer by layer. My classes balance the meditative side of yoga with movement and strength building, hopefully with some good music and a bit of humor. I am deeply grateful for this journey of yoga that has allowed me to meet so many amazing people and has opened up not only my body, but my spirit as well.
