My first experience with yoga was potent. It provided an antidote for the anxiety I was living with as a young adult, it offered insight into the spiritual questions I grappled with as a child and lead to a lifelong commitment to the yoga practice. In addition to being recognized as an experienced yoga instructor (ERYT-500) with over 2700 hours of teaching experience and continuing education provider (YACEP), I am a community nurse (RN) and a mother of two.
Influenced by the Krishnamacharya lineage, I have been teaching yoga since 2005. I have had the opportunity to study with gifted yoga leaders in a range of Hatha yoga practices including restorative yoga, Iyengar, Vijnana, and Viniyoga. I am eternally grateful to Mugs McConnell (www.soyayoga.com) and Sama Fabian (www.aurolabyoga.net), both of whom have be instrumental in guiding my practice and teachings.
I have experience as a nurse and yoga instructor in working with people living with chronic pain, anxiety, depression and addictions. I aim to offer yoga classes that are trauma informed, adaptable and provide a therapeutic experience for the practitioner.
