I have learned that facilitating the care and wellness of others is an essential part of our own well-being. For we are all connected and therefore, the better everyone is doing, well…the better everyone is doing! My passions are care giving, art, birth, and yoga. In my teaching and facilitating of yoga, I take a very hands-on healing approach that I think can help bring deeper support and relaxation as well as alignment of poses. My emphasis on teaching includes Prenatal, Restorative, Adaptive and Hatha Yoga Fusion. I am also a Yoga Therapist.
I long to be surrounded by like-minded souls that share similar passions and commitments: a plight for positive change in our community and therefore, a positive change in our world.
In Light and Love~

As a lifelong swimmer, I’ve always paid attention to my breath, but it wasn’t until after I began practicing Kundalini yoga that I really became aware of its importance. The yogis say if you can control your breath you can control your emotions.
If the best thing you take away from class is an increased awareness of your breath, it will put a smile on my face.
When not doing Kundalini yoga, I enjoy being out in nature with my dog and while at home wondering what my cat is thinking.
