Trained in Baptiste Power Vinyasa (Tier Two Certified), Power Yoga Works (200Hr), Karma Kids NYC Certified.
Fun Fact: I am originally from Ohio and came to North Carolina by way of New Jersey and Massachusetts. I also lived in Spain and Mexico for a few years. I still love to travel but have come to appreciate there’s no place like home-sweet-home with my family!
I began practicing yoga in 1999 when Baron Baptiste opened the Baptiste Power Yoga Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I took my first class with Baron and loved the euphoric feeling of being physically and mentally wrung out. I practiced as a direct student of his, as well as of Rolf Gates, for six years in Cambridge before beginning my journey as a teacher. Baptiste Power Yoga has always been my primary area of training but I have also enjoyed periods of study in Ashtanga and have been influenced by intensive trainings with Tim Miller, Dharma Mittra, and Sharon Gannon.
Yoga, for me, is a daily reset. It clears my mind and body of clutter and leaves me available to be my best self for the people in my life. My classes are challenging, playful and empowering. I love sharing this practice with people and seeing them access new possibilities on and, more importantly, off the mat.
When I am not teaching classes, working with my teen yogi-athletes and dancers, or hanging out upside down on my own mat, I can be found doing laundry, driving my kids around town.
I look forward to seeing you in class. Namaste!
