Since 2009 I have been teaching Hatha, Vinyasa, and Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga in group and private classes. My personal practice started in 1999, at the age of 18. As a Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500) I have taught athletes, people with limited mobility, or healing from medical treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation, along with folks looking for a new method to maintain or improve health.
As a classically trained dancer, and having received a B.S. in Dance (Pre-Dance/Movement Therapy) I have a strong foundation in anatomy and physiology, along with an understanding of psychology. You'll find our time spent together offers a connection between the physical body and emotional body. These two bodies are deeply intertwined. You'll be invited to look at yourself on subtle levels with curiosity and compassion.
Women – mothers – are the backbone of the family. They are the matriarch. The decisions the matriarch makes lasts for generations after. It’s an honor to support these women as they care for themselves, their children, partners, and families.
By helping women *and men* understand what pregnancy, birthing, and parenthood is about on all levels (mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually) they then gain a greater sense of self and responsibility to this life-changing process. No person is the same after their child is born.
Off the Mat
Not only am I passionate about the mind-body connection, but also practice a holistic lifestyle... I grew up this way! What we ingest, put on our skin, place in our environment, and whom we surround ourselves with matter to our well-being.
To compliment this lifestyle I have completed certifications as a Feng Shui Practitioner (2005), Reiki Level II Practitioner (2004), and Intermediate Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner (2012). I've spent many hours with energy workers and mediums to harness my own intuition, too.
To further help my clients and students have quick access to live a natural, more vibrant life I aligned with my favorite companies below. You may browse and purchase online through these links at your convenience. If you have questions or would like extra advice - contact me. I'm here to help!
