Yoga became a practice for me before I knew what it was. For as long as I can remember I have always honored the awareness of breath, quieted my busy mind, found peace through life’s difficulties, stillness amongst the noise, and enjoyed putting my body into shapes that felt good. During my first savasana I fell in love. In that moment my passion ignited and I made the decision to commit my heart to the practice. Dedicated student, passionate teacher and educator—it is my honor to help others by providing a loving, safe, and inspiring space for you to blossom your practice day to day. I create mindful movements with meditations that fosters growth and transformation for whatever you may seek. My intention is to create more balance in your practice by uniting body, mind and breath as you open yourself towards the beautiful light within your heart.
