about me

I started practicing yoga over 12 years ago, as a means to alleviate physical stress in my body caused by running and cycling. It has been a way for me to really tune in and connect with not only my physical body, but my emotional and spiritual self.

what to expect

My teaching style depends on the class. I like a challenging flow, with poses that make sense in the body and plenty of variety. I love balancing. My musical selections are mostly downtempo - occasionally some classic rock or pop, depending on my mood.

other passions

I love spending time outdoors running, cycling, skiing, paddling, gardening, whatever! I love my family deeply and am so blessed by each of them. I have a huge heart for pets and could not imagine life without our three dogs.
‚ÄúRemember when you go into the world to keep your eyes and ears wide open. And be kind. Love one another. Take care of each other. Tell the truth. Always do your best. Listen to the big people and the little people. Explore new paths and have fun. Know that you are loved like crazy. Give thanks for all your blessings. Above all else, LOVE and you will do wonderful things in this world."
