My Story

Yoga found me when I needed it most

In 2000 yoga found me and it was the first time in my life that my mind was still and I knew I had to have more of this new found peace. I began a regular yoga practice and had the honor of practicing under a master teacher since 2008. After years of practicing yoga, I started to find the inner peace I craved and I realized that I wanted to share the gift of yoga with as many people as possible. In 2014 I became a certified yoga instructor. I am a passionate and spiritual yoga instructor who creates dynamic lesson plans structured around a theme to include asana, pranayama, and meditation based on the 8 Limb Path of Yoga. I’m a certified Yoga Alliance RYT200 instructor trained in Sivananda Yoga and I’m also Power Pilates certified. And I received my RYT300 certification with Soul Tree Yoga in Lafayette, CO and I have over 2000 teaching and training hours. 

I love to weave the spiritual teachings and messages of yoga throughout my classes to help guide students deeper into their practice. Honoring each students' space and place, I teach to the room and not just my lesson plan. I work to guide students to honor their bodies and not worry about making their body fit a pose. I've had many physical challenges throughout my life and have experienced how yoga can heal the body and mind. I believe this has been a gift because it has helped me understand some of the challenges my students experience.

I feel blessed that yoga came into my life and I became an instructor to share the gift of yoga with as many people as possible to assist them along their journey.
