Also certified in Prenatal Yoga, Reiki and Native American Healing Hands

My eyes were opened to yoga in high school after the death of my father. At that time I was looking for a way to accept the changes in my life and my heart found peace by doing yoga. Over the past 18yrs my personal expression of Yoga has changed.  Yoga isn’t just about a physical posture (asana) it’s about learning how to accept the things you cannot change and embracing the difficult things in your life with an open heart. One of the greatest joys of teaching is seeing the peace of mind that washes over your students while in a class. Yoga has changed my life and being able to share that with others is one of the most beautiful gifts I could ask for.

When you come to one of my classes you can expect to hear a lot of talk about the heart! Opening up to gratitude and love are something that I struggle with, and I have learned throughout the years that a lot of people feel the same way. I like to invite in the energies of the universe, so I use the seasons and celestial events to help open up a receptive space inside of the students. I will also draw in the healing energy of Reiki or the Native American Healing Hands. You can expect to do mudras and breath work and maybe even some chanting. Every class is different depending on needs of the students.

I live with my wonderful husband and twin daughters along with our little furry companion.
