I began teaching yoga as a means of connecting the physical practice of yoga (asana) with individuals who may otherwise be wary or unsure of how a regular practice could positively impact their daily lives. This practice is all-inclusive and boasts accessibility to ALL beginner and intermediate students. I offer additional special emphasis on assisting students facing trauma and intense life stress, I also teach a very secular practice, so any/all backgrounds will feel comfortable and respected in their space.

Following a schedule agreement, there will be some brief paperwork regarding the student's goals and concerns. Additionally, we will have a physical assessment at our initial meeting. I believe this creates a dialogue early on between the student and the teacher and sets the tone and boundaries for the conversation while inviting students to open up in a confidential one-on-one discussion.
I am Yoga Alliance certified, 200 hour RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher). I hold certifications in PTSD- and military-informed yoga as well as trauma-informed yoga practices. Additionally, I am well versed in restorative and "yin" practices, as well as traditional hatha, power, and vinyasa flow classes.
My pricing system is a reflection on my skills, experience, and training, however - sliding scale options may be discussed. Additionally, I offer discounts for members of our military, fire, law enforcement, and first responders.
I have experience working with a diverse spectrum of clients, ranging from blue and white-collar workers, military veterans, creative professionals, and retirees. I am a firm believer in the physical accessibility of a yoga practice, any my teaching history boasts this confidence.
Please don't just look at their qualifications: there are a LOT of teachers and a LOT of teacher training programs. The quantitative list of trainings a teacher has does not indicate the quality of their teaching - this can only be established by speaking with and experiencing a yoga teacher in person. Additionally, don't disqualify a teacher you may be interested in working with based on a lack of teaching experience. There are an overwhelming number of yoga teachers "competing" (whether they admit it or not) for jobs at studios, gyms, and other locations. This often overwhelms and prevents qualified teachers from gaining public experience, but I strong believe a passionate and dedicated teacher seeks other means of growing and expanding their teaching practice.
