I discovered my love of yoga during college when a candle-lit studio and melodic-voiced teacher offered a welcome counter-balance to the hustle and bustle of college life. During the years that followed, yoga became my safe haven, my calm constant amidst the busyness and stress of everyday life. Beyond the practice’s mind-quieting powers, I was drawn to its opposition – how yoga teaches us to find ease in the effort, softness in the strength. It’s taught me to come back to my breath in difficult situations far beyond by my mat and to find ease in the moments of life that require tremendous effort. My mat is my training ground to prepare myself to go out into the world with more peace, power, and grace.
After more than a decade of practicing yoga, I completed my 200-hour teaching training in 2018. Teaching adds a new dimension to my practice, and I learn as much from my students as I do from practicing yoga myself. Sharing the gifts of yoga is truly one of my greatest joys. I look forward to seeing you at the studio and learning together!
