My journey into yoga started at a point in my life when things just needed to change. I started with just a 10 minute practice, and it changed my life. To me that is what makes yoga special--it meets the needs of students of all kinds and changes as we change. After practicing at home for some time I found my way to a local yoga studio and continued to grow my practice.

I completed my RYT-200 in Ohio and credit Ylonda Rosenthal-Greene for providing inspirational training and Kathleen Kossman for having the belief in me as a new teacher. Since then I have completed training as a Curvy Yoga teacher, and two advanced trainings at Asheville Yoga Center where I earned my RYT-300. Most recently, I earned my 300 hour certificate in therapeutically oriented yoga. I currently am certified as an ERYT500 with the Yoga Alliance.

More than anything, I believe that yoga is for everyone. I try to make everyone feel welcome and to adapt my classes to meet the needs of my students.
