Certified Yoga Therapist
M.S. Yoga Therapy, C-IAYT, 200 RYT
I grew to realize how important moving my body is for me, both mentally and physically. As a result, I became a group fitness instructor to keep myself motivated and inspire others in movement. In 2012, when the anxiety I was experiencing reached a peak, I learned how to meditate to quiet my mind and rest my body. In 2014, I started to practice yoga. The mind/body/spirit connection for me was immediate. From that point, I was committed to teaching this practice. My wish was to share with the world this amazing tool that simply requires a mat and your breath. As a result, I pursued a certification to teach, then a Master's in Yoga Therapy.
While I have enjoyed my career in development, I’m working to become a full-time, certified Integrative Health & Wellness Coach in a healthcare setting, using Yoga Therapy as a resource.
I believe I can be helpful to someone who has any physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual concerns that prevent them from living their best life. They have likely “tried everything”, and/or prefer to take a holistic/integrative approach to their health and wellness.
When I am not teaching small group yoga classes or private yoga therapy sessions, my self-care includes reading, and listening to, self-development books or podcasts, practicing meditation, yoga, running, biking, lifting weights, and staying active. I especially love joining my two teenage sons on any adventure and watching them fulfill their passion for sports and music.
