I am a dog lover. I adopted my beloved little girl over 14 years ago. She is my heart.
I am solar powered. Give me all of the sunshine!
I ran away to the Virgin Islands after I graduated college. It was the greatest adventure of my life. I fell in love with the island and eventually learned how to love myself through yoga. It was not a smooth love story. It was definitely a tumultuous journey. Which is why I do what I do…
I want to share yoga with you. I want you to potentially forgive and love yourself as much as I have learned to do over the last decade. I want to help you feel confident, supported, and comfortable in your body. I want to cheer you on and help you grow. I want to help you bridge the gap between how you act and feel on your yoga mat with how you act and feel in the "real" world.
Through the practice of yoga, I find love, peace, honesty, generosity, and joy I didn't even know I was capable of experiencing before a yogic lifestyle. Yoga brought me home to myself, woke me up, and made me willingly vulnerable. The growth keeps happening, and the lessons keep coming. As my greatest teacher says, the work is never done.
Here is my wish for you: to embrace the many layers of yoga - the lifestyle, teachings, meditation, philosophy, and techniques so that you can fill your life with more balance, delight, and harmony. I hope that yoga brings as much peace in your heart and vibrancy in your life as it has for me.
My offerings, classes, retreats, teacher trainings, and workshops are a platform to share the path of yoga as a lifestyle in a down-to-earth and practical (and applicable!) presentation. I want you to be able to implement these teachings and move through this world with more compassion in your heart for yourself and every other part of this earth.
Come travel the world with me to experience beautiful places and the people that live there. Or come to one of my local classes. Even better, invite me to your studio and we can collaborate and create something magical together.
