E- RYT 500, YACEP, Program Director. Reiki and Crystal Intuitive Practitioner
Yoga became part of my existence in 1987 when life brought me to my knees. It was not until I walked into a Yoga Nidra class where I discovered the meaningful path I was about to embark on. My teacher walked over to my mat and gently rested a rose quartz on my heart center. Today, I incorporate Yoga Nidra in every class and weave in either crystals, reiki, chakra awareness, and Ayurverdic marma points.
I am an (Experienced Registered) ERYT 500-Hour Yoga Teacher registered with the Yoga Alliance. My roots are in Hatha and Vinyasa yoga. I teach proper postures to ensure maximum benefit and safety, instructing with props and modifications when needed as well as playing the edge of your mat to maximize your practice. Hands on alignments, adjustments, and a thorough knowledge of anatomy are always primary for me. I have Advanced Registered Training in Therapeutic Yoga; Yoga for Mental Health, Trauma and Addiction. I am able to teach you not only because of my training but, because I empathize with your world.

I offer 200 Hour Registered Yoga Alliance Teacher Training. In addition, I am part of the Kula for Karma Yoga Family.

Yoga was something I wanted to do for so many years. Raising two daughters, juggling life’s responsibilities, rarely having extra time for myself, I finally vowed to carve time out to give yoga a try. Fast forward, after practicing for 2 years, I needed to dive deeper and enrolled into teacher training. Sharing this amazing mind, body and soul practice with students has become my passion for the past 4 years. Needing more, and wanting to give more of myself, I became certified in prenatal and postnatal yoga. It is my goal to empower the pregnant body and mind. There is no better time to engage in this practice, learning about your changing body, mindfully connecting your movements with your breath all the while connecting with your baby.
