First and foremost, I am so glad you're here!
I'm a small-town farm girl, turned city dweller, who loves the sand in my toes and the sun on my face, has big dreams and is obsessed with yoga! I began my love, study, and practice of yoga over 8 years ago, my practice has helped me grow stronger, more flexible and fearless, both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires me to live each moment more mindfully.
I completed my yoga certification with YogaWorks and am now a RYT200 with Yoga Alliance, specializing in Hatha and Vinyasa Flow Yoga, as well as Barre. I will always be a student of the practice and am deeply grateful for the loving wisdom my teachers have shared with me.
In my classes, I love to combine creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness and a dose of inspiration to help you deepen your practice. I seek to help others thrive and live by nurturing the body, mind and soul with yoga, and my hope is that you step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.
In addition to teaching yoga, I'm a former Cardiovascular Nurse; I worked under the direction of renowned heart surgeon, Dr. Ted Dietrich, at Arizona Heart Hospital for over 10 years. I've continued my dedication to heart health by partnering with American Heart Association as an EmPOWERED to Serve ambassador in the fight against heart disease and stroke. From hospital scrubs to yoga pants, I have the desire and passion to help educate, empower and inspire others to live their best life through health and wellness!
You wanna know what lights me up?! Helping people own and celebrate their yoga journey and watching them embrace their extraordinary life! If I can be that person in your life that whispers “you really can do this” while the rest of the world is provoking doubt… then I’ll consider my job done!
I welcome you and look forward to seeing YOU grow in your yoga practice and embracing your extraordinary life!
With Love & Gratitude,
