Having dabbled with yoga on and off for years, I became hooked in 2005 after the birth of my daughter when struggling with post partum depression. After trying several things yoga was the “thing” that helped the most because it worked on so many different levels; it calmed my nervous system, helped me work through chronic muscle tension, it even gave me the tools I needed to begin looking at damaging beliefs I held about myself and the world that kept me in a depressive cycle. Yoga has been a gift. It transforms from the inside out - not just increasing flexibility in our bodies but also in our hearts and our minds.
Although I believe that yoga is a sacred practice, there is always room to laugh and make mistakes! I hope that people will find my classes fun and relaxing but also challenging and sometimes thought provoking. When not on the mat I am an obsessive reader, lover of the outdoors and arts, and I especially love just hanging out with my family.

With gentle encouragement, to stay present and move with the breath we can all discover the amazing benefits of yoga.
