Bio

Introduced to classic Hatha Yoga as a teenager, I have continued to practice throughout my adult life. In 2005 I discovered the Integral Yoga Institute and found the essence of  yoga that I had been seeking; a contemplative, mindful practice intended to remove obstacles and restore peace. In 2008, on a path to deepening my own practice, I became a teacher.

It is deeply rewarding to work collaboratively, assisting others to improve strength, flexibility, cultivate compassion, and raise awareness. My trainings enable me to work safely and mindfully with a wide range of clients towards optimal health and wellness. I have worked with various populations with a variety of conditions including aging, high blood pressure, stroke, chronic pain, post-op patients, individuals with PTS, veterans, those experiencing depression, anxiety, and people with physical limitations and limited mobility.
