I started practicing yoga in 2010 at the local YMCA. It was a stressful time in life and I found yoga helped my anxiety. The physical and mental benefits kept me going consistently for several years. In 2015 I suffered a fall and the injury left me unable to practice for a year. It was a long journey but it taught me patience and loving-kindness toward myself. It also gave me a new awareness and appreciation for my body. In 2017 I started practicing at Pilgrimage of the Heart and in 2018 I graduated with my YTT200 (Yoga Teacher Training) and I’m Yoga Alliance Certified. I have experience working with all ages and abilities, having taught community classes at Pilgrimage of the Heart Yoga Studio, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church and Christ Church Coronado. In 2019 I received advanced training in Chair Yoga to better assist people with injuries and limited mobility. In 2020 I received advanced training in Pranayama and like to incorporate breath work and meditation into my classes. And in 2021 I completed a Hip Therapeutics Course. I’m currently enrolled in a Shoulders Therapeutics Course.
I’m currently seeing private clients and teach a variety of classes online via Zoom. You can find me in-person in Coronado a few Sunday evenings each month and at the NUC Library on Thursdays. I am excited to share my knowledge and experience with others in hopes to help them on their journey of healing and wholeness. I believe yoga is for every BODY.
