I'm a fat, white, atheist, agender, spoonie* who specializes in teaching adaptive, mixed-level yoga to all humans. I'm the founder of change.yoga, the Director of Inclusion & Communications at Rooted Yoga in Covington, KY, & travel to other studios & communities leading inclusion skillshares. I'm anti-diet and pro-self-empowerment. Before becoming a teacher, I practiced yoga for over 15 years off and on. After being diagnosed with several chronic illnesses, I found my way back to a consistent practice including meditation and breathwork. My teaching philosophy is that I'm here to help my students build their own practice in order to empower themselves to gain all the benefits yoga has to offer. When I'm not practicing or teaching yoga, I'm a freelance marketing consultant and wannabe artist, chef, and gardener. *Spoonies are people living with chronic illness/pain and comes from the spoon theory by Christina Miserandino
My goal isn't to get you to do a certain pose. My goal is to help you connect with your body so you can become your own expert. It's about self-empowerment and finding your own strength. This is often done in moments of stillness and breath but we can move as much as you want as well.

I kept hearing people say they couldn't do yoga for one reason or another (too heavy, not flexible, etc). I would tell them they were wrong but most of them didn't feel comfortable going to a regular studio with most teachers. So I decided to start teaching to help bring the benefits of yoga to people who think they can't do yoga for whatever reason.
I've worked with all kinds of students of all genders, sizes, ages, and abilities. I've had students who could do poses that I will probably never do myself and students who did their practice week after week on their mat.
Talk to them before you take their class or have a private session. Ask them what kind of training and experience they have working with diverse body types and abilities. Do they have experience modifying poses to meet their students' needs? Are they more interested in getting into certain poses or helping you to develop your own practice and empowering you?
