Sagittarius // Yogi // Shakti seeker // Plant-based // Wife to be
Raised around the world, still growing within.
I am a full-time yoga teacher, part-time blog enthusiast.
In 2012, I unrolled my mat for the first time. That was the same summer I began my journey of recovery and self-love. When I stepped onto my mat, I was asked to step into my body. At first this was terrifying. But with support and guidance from my teachers, and a desperate urge to heal, I slowly rediscovered myself, in my own skin. My yoga mat is my sanctuary; and my body, my temple. The devotion and self love that I discovered in my yoga practice has become a life practice. I believe in the healing powers of yoga and it is my dharma to share this intuitive wisdom with the world.
I completed my 200 hour certification in Denver, Colorado as a power vinyasa yogi. I studied with two of the most influential women I’ve ever met, Katy Rowe and Christen Bakken. My yoga lineage stems from bhakti yoga, the yoga of devotion inspired by the teaching of Rusty Wells, and power vinyasa yoga, a breath-to-movement flow style inspired by the teaching of Baron Baptiste. I completed my 300 hour training with yoga therapist Cortni Saunders of Mindful Motion Yoga Center in Nashville, Tennessee. This training involved the study of advanced topics including physical anatomy, yoga as trauma therapy, the subtle body, and therapeutic yoga as a private practice.
In a culture that invites us to escape the present moment, neglect our bodies, and ignore our intuition, my goal as a yoga teacher is to help us return to ourselves. Through the 8 Limb Path, students will be guided back to the divine and infinite potential that lies within. Through therapeutic yoga practices I help students embody breath, mindfulness, and self-love. My intention is to create a safe and authentic space for yogis to heal and nurture themselves back into a place of trust & ease. Through the practice of yoga, students will cultivate tools for self-expression and self-awareness for a holistic mind & body experience.
My teaching style is an alignment based and breath focused vinyasa flow. My classes are open to all levels of experience and all body types. I offer a therapeutic style of yoga that caters to the needs of each individual. Private lessons and public classes are available. I also offer a variety of workshop topics and I have created a 200 Hour Teacher Training program that can be offered at any registered yoga school. As a 200 E-RYT all of my workshops and trainings are registered through Yoga Alliance and are worth Continued Education hours for registered yoga teachers.
