I am an 500+ hour IYT trained Yoga Therapist with a lifetime of experience as a body worker, dancer and yogi. I've been teaching yoga since I stopped being a hospice massage therapist in 2009. My understanding of muscle, connective tissue and nerves combined with my professional experiences influence the way I teach. I'm a trauma sensitive teacher skilled in working with pain, chronic illness, PTSD and depression. I gladly modify my classes to accommodate yogis of any age or experience levels.
My yoga teacher training started by studying Yin Yoga with author, scientist and yogi Bernie Clark in 2008. Since then I've studied and taught many forms of yoga and meditation. In my classes I pull from everything I know, including somatic retraining, to create a deep sense of peace in mind, body and spirit. My goal as a Yoga Therapist and teacher is for you to be able to help yourself with the therapeutic movements, breath and ideas we work with in class so you may live more easily in your skin.
