I began practicing yoga in 1999 and quickly discovered that I had happened into something very powerful. As I realized the transformative effects of yoga on a physical, mental, emotional and energetic level, my mission became sharing this phenomenon with others. In 2003, I received my 200-hour teaching certification from Ana Forrest. In 2005 I attended the Moksha Yoga teacher training program, and in 2010, Yogaview’s Level 2 training program. The study of yoga fascinates me and I continue to study with both local and world-renowned master teachers on an on-going basis.
My teaching style is a fusion of the various yoga disciplines I have studied, especially Ashtanga, Iyengar, and ParaYoga. While my asana practice is most influenced by these schools of yoga, I maintain the pillars of Forrest yoga: breath, strength, integrity and spirit, and place equal importance in finding a place for joy and laughter in the practice. Always a different sequence, my flow classes are challenging and sometimes rather sweaty, but are at the same time a safe haven for students of all abilities. I also enjoy teaching the Niyama Hot series. Its intelligent sequencing makes it a terrific introduction to new practitioners while still challenging the most seasoned. Plus, it’s just good sweaty fun. I am especially grateful for the generosity of spirit with which it’s founder created and shared the practice.
