About this pro

After 20 years of practicing yoga sporadically and loving it every time I did, I took the plunge and enrolled in yoga teacher training in 2019. I discovered this deep well of wisdom in a consistent daily practice and it lit a fire in me to learn and teach.

I love guiding people into right relationship with their bodies through yoga and ayurveda. When you begin to cultivate the habits that honor your body and yourself, you begin to live a purpose centered life. When you begin to live from purpose, joy arises naturally. This was my personal journey. Having been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and suffering through daily pain, yoga brought me through the pain and into joy and into my greater purpose.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

To begin with, I like to clarify with the student what their goals are and then guide them in setting achievable benchmarks to be achieved during our time together. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Yoga Alliance RYT200 yoga teacher certification, 100 hour Radiant Body Yoga Advanced Teacher Training Module with Kia Miller, Integrative Health Coach certification from Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Yoga Health Coach training with Cate Stillman.

How did you get started teaching?

I had been a yoga practitioner for over 2 decades and felt like I needed to breathe new life into my practice, so I faced my fears of being in the front of the room and enrolled in my first yoga teacher training in 2019. I am so glad I did! I absolutely LOVE guiding people into a deeper relationship with their bodies and with themselves.

What types of students have you worked with?

Retirees, moms, teenagers, athletes, service members, law enforcement officials and people in recovery from addiction/ alcoholism.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently, I traveled to California to invest time in building my relationship with my daughter (she is 23). We attended an outdoor sound healing gathering Joshua Tree. The weather was perfect and the mood was sweet. Afterwards we grabbed breakfast and ate outside and talked about our individual experiences. I am grateful to be able to build these kinds of memories with her. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make a connection with several teachers and choose the one you feel most at ease with. Have a conversation voice to voice with all prospects and listen to what your intuition is telling you. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is your motivation for seeking out a teacher at this time?
