I discovered yoga in 2001, and it was love at first asana. Unlike anything else, the practice just made sense to me, and it has led me to countless “Aha!” moments both on and off the mat. I have always felt compelled to share the beauty and light of yoga with others, and in 2011 I completed my 250 hour teaching certification at Wake Up Yoga. My teaching style is precise and alignment-focused, and I seek to add levity and bits of yogic philosophy to each class. I invite students to challenge themselves and find their edge in order to dive more deeply into themselves with each practice. I am eternally grateful to my wise and gracious teachers, Corina Benner and Victoria Ladd; to my beloved mentor, Biz Magarity; to all of my teachers, past, present and future; and to all of their teachers and their teachers’ teachers. I am honored and humbled to now be called teacher myself.
In August of 2015 I completed 50 hours of study focused in hands-on assisting at Laughing Lotus Yoga Center in New York as part of a 500 hour RYT certification and have recently completed an in-depth exploration on the art of adjusting with Alex Auder.
