I’m thrilled that you’re checking out my website, which means you must be interested in yoga or beginning to explore the possibilities of yoga. Know this, yoga can be a transformational practice.
Urgh, I really don’t like talking about myself but I’ll let you in on how yoga changed my life.
Six years ago I was in recovery from an eating disorder that had ruled my life since I was in my mid-teens. A dear friend kept encouraging me to “take a yoga class, take a yoga class, you’ll love it”.
It took me a year but I finally went to one. Whoa. I loved it for all the reasons that people initially come to yoga. However, the one thing that made it truly transformational was that it allowed me to drop my armor. For years I had built a significant shield around myself for protection. Little did I know that my armor also functioned as a prison to keep me closed off from my feelings, friends, family and living my life. It’s not always easy living with an open heart, it’s a daily practice. However it’s a practice that I’m fully committed to and am excited to share it with you.
My Yoga “Creds” and Inspirations:
Completed 200 hour Jivasara teacher training with Marni Task

I’m also truly inspired by these amazing teachers: Kathryn Budig, Seane Corn, Amy Ippoliti, , Judith Lasater , Max Strom, Gina Schatz, and Laura Noss-Sutphen. I could go on forever but there is only so much room.
