I always try to meet the new student exactly where they are in the practice - building step by step towards understanding and mastery. As a new student, you will have a short self-assessment that will help me to better understand your body, mind, and goals you have for your practice.

Yes, I do. All information for pricing can also be found at YogaPDX.com. I offer a sliding scale for those in need.
I began teaching after practicing yoga for almost 10 years. I found that I wanted to deepen my own practice, and at the same time I knew that I needed to bring the benefits of a healthy yoga practice to others. I took a huge leap of faith, and haven't looked back - I have a passion for connecting and sharing with people from all walks of life. I love the way that yoga creates a community out of strangers, and I feel driven to build my business in the best ethics possible.
I have worked with students ranging from 15-70 years old. Students have ranged in physical ability, level of practice, and personalities! Some of the conditions I have worked with are: anxiety, depression, rage, scoliosis, knee injury, spinal injury, hyper and hypotension, and more.
Studying under great teachers in the summer of 2017, such as Maggie Reagh, Neil Pearson, Bernie Clark, Nicole Marcia, Tianne Allen, and Danille Schroeder
Look for a teacher that you feel safe and comfortable learning from. Don't ever let a teacher tell you how to feel, and look up their training programs and background! Not all yoga trainings are well-rounded, well taught, or informed.
What are you goals for the practice? What feels good in the body and what doesn't feel good in the body?
