As a free flowing mover and modern dancer, Vinyasa flow classes have drawn me deeper into my personal practice and influenced my teaching style. My dance background helped me to create interesting and original sequencing, which allows me to provide an open space for my students to move like themselves. I am a hands-on instructor and offer gentle assists and adjustments for my students, which not only helps to prevent injuries, but can transcend the power of healing for stress, overwork, and anxiety. Musicality and the power of chant play an important role in my classes. I am trained in life balance consultation (Ayurveda) and massage therapy, which I offer upon request. I aspire to create a warm, welcoming, and fun experience for my students to learn more about themselves, to dive deeper into their practice, and to trust in the unknown.
I received my 200 hour certification through CorePower Yoga in Chicago in 2009 and my 500 hour certification at Laughing Lotus NYC in 2013.
My inspiration comes from everyday life, nature, the ability to let go, fearlessness, acts of love and kindness, and the balancing act we call life. While I've studied under amazing and inspiring yogi's, my teachers come in all different forms of humanity.
