Yoga for me was originally an escape from the stress of being a full-time working mom of twin babies. Those babies are now high-schoolers, and now that I am slightly less stressed out, I love to help others find a sense of balance that comes from a consistent yoga practice.
I love to find a connection with my students and make yoga accessible and fun for all ages and ability levels. No judgement, no expectations and no competition. I want to help you find that sweet spot where yoga is a complement to your already-full life.
I teach classes with movement, breath work, fun flows and poses that encourage us to tap into our inner strength, be more mindful, connect to our bodies and love and care for ourselves, not just physically, but in all aspects of our lives.
Oregon is my soul’s home, but I am a Michigan transplant who taught Hatha, Vinyasa and SUP yoga classes at my studio, Flow Yoga, in Plainwell, MI, for five years. I love being outdoors and in addition to yoga, consider hiking, cycling, SUP and kayaking to be forms of moving meditation. In my free moments you’ll find me exploring everything that the Pacific Northwest has to offer with my family and dog in tow.
I am a registered yoga teacher E-RYT200 with the Yoga Alliance and have my 200hr certification through Yogafit, as well as a Lazy Dog Paddle Yoga Certification. I am currently continuing my yoga studies and working toward my ERYT500 certification in the Advanced Teacher training program at YoYo Yogi in Portland, Oregon.
