I am a passionate and creative Vinyasa Yoga instructor. My classes focus on the foundations of Yoga and the principles of alignment, with a fun and lighthearted approach.

In 2007, I completed my 200 hour training under the direction of Graham Fowler and Ursula Nix at Peachtree Yoga Center in Atlanta, GA. Shortly after, I spent a year teaching and exploring the beautiful country of Costa Rica. Here I did quite a bit of traveling, soul searching, and working with people from all over the world. Since then I have taught in studios, spas, hospitals, and a variety of other spaces both on the East and West coasts. I have worked with athletes, people with injuries, and total beginners. My classes focus on the foundations of Yoga and the principles of alignment, with a fun and lighthearted approach. I am grateful to all of my teachers and lucky to have had the opportunity to study with Annie Carpenter, Max Strom, and Vickie Russell Bell just to name a few. I am also a certified Holistic Health Coach with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
