I have over 20 years of experience in yoga & fitness, specializing in body awareness, anatomy, and inversions. Growing up, I did gymnastics & played several sports, which taught me how to connect with my body on a deeper level.
After reconstructive knee surgery in 2014, I began taking yoga classes to aid in my recovery. I quickly found yoga as a way to not only rebuild my strength, but also alleviate stress and anxiety. Shortly after, I became a certified yoga teacher and personal trainer, and have spent the last 5 years taking trainings & courses from amazing teachers around the world to understand the body even more.
I have found that yoga & fitness can be very meditative when combined with awareness & understanding of the body. Combining my training in transcendental meditation, anatomy, and fitness, my teaching style is meditative, challenging, and unique, whether you are taking a vinyasa or yin class with me. This combination creates an amazing experience for mental & physical growth & progression in every students yoga practice – on & off the mat.
With a solid understanding of the anatomy of the body, I customize all of my classes and private sessions based on the needs of my students, as every body is so different.
I currently reside in the U.S. with my husband and pitbull, and am available for group, corporate, and private sessions.
