Inspired by my own personal yoga practice, I am committed to helping others cultivate confidence & realize your own beauty & strength. I offer mindfulness-based classes that promote awareness of body, mind & spirit. I create intelligent & playful sequencing, empowering you to feel peaceful & at ease in your body as you step off your mat. I am honored to hold a space for you as you progress on your personal yoga journey. I am grateful that I have experienced the powerful benefits of yoga & am passionate about sharing that love & joy with others.
