I started taking yoga classes at my local gym around 2002, searching for healthy ways to offset stress as a software game producer and manager, but discovered a deeper connection with the practice years later during pregnancy. Initially yoga provided a needed break from the stresses of work and greater comfort in my physical body, but I was surprised at how it boosted my confidence to surrender during birth and delivery. Prenatal yoga became a path of self-discovery, strengthening and softening. Feeling a deep sense of trust and connection with my body allowed me to be fully confident and at ease in the decision to give birth to my three children home.

After weeks of rest at home, I turned to yoga again and found it instrumental in grounding my nervous system and encouraging self-care as a new parent. I spent the next many years nurturing my three spirited children and before long a desire unfolded to delve deeper into the science and art of this approach to wellness, share it with others, and assist the journey of families in the community.

I’ve been teaching since 2017, have over 430 hours of in-person training with an emphasis on the female body. I am very grateful to have studied under Jenn Wooten and Angie Knight, as well as Alice Duffy, Sarah Evans, DeLora Frederickson, Stacey Loop, Laura Kirtan Marcotte, Laura Forsyth and Sarah Powers.
