The wonderful health benefits of practicing Yoga were made quickly clear to me during my third year in college. (2011) I showed up to a Yoga class one evening feeling run down with a cold and upon completion of the hour-long asana practice I no longer felt sick! From that point on I knew there was something to the ancient practice of Yoga and continued my pursuit of knowledge as my life would allow it. After graduating college in 2013 I attended a month-long Living Yoga Training program Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville in Buckingham County, Virginia. The program, which focused deeply on the philosophy of Yoga, meditation multiple times a day, and deliberate movement of the body with focused awareness expanded my knowledge by leaps and bounds.
Following this experience I saved up enough money to attend my 200-hour Teacher Training at the Kripalu Institute of Yoga and Health. The Kripalu lineage, whose philosophy is that of “self-observation without judgement”, helped to fortify the path to deep understanding of the core teachings of Yoga that I had already embarked on. I spent an intensive month studying asanas, proper alignment, sequencing, and how to create an intentional space conducive to inner exploration of the self.
I then stayed on at Kripalu for another year as a volunteer in the Karma Yoga program. Karma is a Sanskrit word which translates to ‘action’ and the essence of the program was to provide service to all those visiting Kriplau in hopes to deepen their connection with self. I learned the benefits of living in an intentional community and again came to a greater understanding of how to live Yoga every moment of every day.
Since then I have been deepening my personal practice through asana, meditation, and study of various Yogic texts. I have found my own personal style of practice centered around acute awareness, curiosity, and a playfulness that helps to create ease in my life. My aim as a Yoga teacher is to guide my students deeper into themselves, discover a new relationship with body and mind, and to have a blast while doing so! I try my darndest not to take myself too seriously and you’ll often find me laughing my way through class as I create a map for my students to navigate the juxtaposition of the inner and outer worlds.

Trained at YogaWorks SoHo in NYC my background has roots in the Iyengar, Ashtanga and Viniyoga systems. In my hatha and vinyasa classes I make use of props to suit the individual. I tailor each class to the students in the room, offering different options for every level of experience and ability. Throughout the class my attention is on the students, offering verbal guidance and hands-on adjustments continually. I enjoy teaching classes specifically geared towards beginners and open level flow classes. I strive to create a safe and non-competitive environment where each participant can find their own expression of each pose and have fun!

I aim to inspire others to find the best in themselves through yoga.
