I completed my 500-hour teacher training through YogaWorks in 2015 and my 200-hour teacher training through Cloud Nine Yoga. I am also certified in Yin Yoga through Asheville Yoga Center and have advanced training in restorative yoga with Judith Lasater. I have a master’s degree in clinical psychology and art therapy and am a certified health coach and mind-body medicine practitioner.
My teaching style is eclectic. While primarily influenced by vinyasa, I also enjoy infusing a range of yoga styles and lineages into my classes. I have a strong alignment focus and seek to incorporate intelligent and creative sequencing into every class I teach.
What Brought Me to Yoga
I practiced yoga on and off for many years, but it took a while for me to “get it.” For a long time, I saw yoga as a form of exercise. It wasn’t until I was going through some challenges in my life that I realized how transformational and supportive yoga could be. During this time, a deep shift took place, and my yoga practice became both a mirror and a sanctuary. My time on my mat took on rich meaning and became foundational in my life.
When I’m not practicing yoga I love to spend time in the beauty of nature. I also love to paint and have a ton of pins of dream craft projects on Pinterest!
