I am a passionate and creative Vinyasa Yoga instructor based in Atlanta, GA.  Upon completion of my first teacher training in 2007,  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 and a variety of other spaces both on the East and West coasts.  I have a deep love for Yoga, and believe wholeheartedly that taking care of one’s body is essential to living a happy life.  A transplant from the deep South,  I also enjoy nature, hiking with my dog Humphrey, and trying new things.  My classes focus on the foundations of Yoga and the principles of alignment, with a lighthearted approach.   I am also a certified Holistic Health Coach with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.  Through Yoga,  I hope to inspire others to slow life down, open their hearts and find a connection with the body.
