In 2005, Yoga found me - a Beginner's Yoga class for two hours
every Friday morning. Unexpected changes in my body and health
started occurring - I had more energy, felt healthier and happier
in my body than ever before, and started seeing my life in a
different light. After that first year of initial learning and
practicing, I knew I wanted to share yoga and its benefits with as
many people as possible.
Years later, in 2011, I had the privilege of enrolling in a
200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training program with Tiffany
Cruikshank at Yoga Pearl, and receiving my teaching certificate.
I'm continuing my education, under Tiffany actively working toward
my 500-hour Yoga Medicine certification to be complete in early
I teach yoga as a means to help other people. The magic of
watching a student’s practice transform from one week to another is
what keeps me going. I find joy in knowing that I can offer a
resource to help so many people with their struggles of everyday
life on and off the mat. My approach is playful and knowledgeable,
while keeping the focus on the individual needs of my students. My
goal is to break down seemingly hard asanas to make them accessible
to people of varying levels and I promise one thing; challenging
classes that will make my students sweat!
