I was first introduced to yoga during high school via DVDs. Over the years I engaged in workshops and dove deep into the ancient texts, philosophies, and postures. Alongside the physical benefits of the practice such as increased strength, flexibility, and improved breathing, I began to observe my outer world and inner self aligning, I began walking and talking with compassion that stemmed from the center of my heart.
In 2019 I attended Caribe Yoga Academy 200YTT and spent a month living in the jungle on a beautiful yoga ashram. I was trained in vinyasa yoga based on functional anatomy. In early 2020 I traveled back to assist my teacher in facilitating a yoga teacher training. I love to continue my education and nerd out on all things yoga! I love spending time with my husband and dog, being in nature, and seeing live music.
My goal as a yoga practitioner is to allow for students to drop into a meditative practice and learn to find stability and sovereignty of the body and mind that can be taken off of the mat. We will set a sankalpa (intention), build agni (fire), and dive into physical asana (postures), using modifications and props, always ending with a restoring savasana. I look forward to practicing with you. OM shanti!

“Homerun. One of the best retreats I’ve ever attended. Was an incredible treat especially to have so much access to Krishna Das, and I will never forget the Robert Thurman’s hysterical and insightful words. Incredibly inspiring and powerful weekend!”
“A place of exceptional beauty. A retreat center surrounded by nature, silence and beauty.”
