PRIVATE 1:1 SESSIONS + GROUP EVENTS
I have been in the healthcare field for 30 years, starting as an ICU nurse, and for the last 20 years practicing as a pediatric nurse practitioner. I spent years of training and participation in college-level volleyball and running. I also am a mother of three beautiful humans and one dog. In about 2005, I decided to try yoga. I was at a time in my life when I needed a physical outlet to maintain my health and well-being, without continuing to cause stress and impact on my body. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that yoga encompasses not only physical health, but supports our mental focus, emotional health, self-love and care. Yoga felt different at first, but then I would find myself in a challenging posture, focusing on my breath, working on my strength and balance, and realize the benefit I was receiving, all without hurting myself. I then found immense peace and spiritual connection through Savasana, the final meditation time of each class.
With all of these experiences that have shaped me, I am committed to sharing health and wellness, encouraging people to love themselves and find their authentic voice. Through practicing yoga, I have experienced physical benefits, mental focus, incredible healing, and personal growth. I want to share this with others! I want to create an accepting, safe, comfortable environment that allows students to explore the mind-body-spirit connection that is so unique to yoga. Yoga is for everyone! Not flexible? Neither am I! Everyone’s body is different and we need to honor that. We all have different starting points and abilities. The goal is the breath, movement, focus, and connection, not the ultimate posture you obtain. It’s all good!
My classes will be modifiable for any level, and give instruction to teach beginners safe alignment. I love an active Vinyasa flow with music and mantras to guide intention and focus. I enjoy integrating yoga philosophy and Chakra focus into class sessions. I hope you’ll join me! Let’s grow and stay healthy together!
