When I’m not teaching, you might find me:  playing with my pups, cooking with my partner, practicing yoga, or seeking/holding space for my yoga therapy clients.

My mantra:  "Here I am.  I am here."  Oh the beauty, simplicity and challenge of presence. 

My “at bat” song:  "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey.  I just can't help myself.  It makes me want to dance and sing at the top of my lungs! 

In my class you will/can expect:  to discover more about yourself, after all, you are your own guru. 

Badass moment:  Stepping forward, away from a life and career that no longer served.  It was a huge leap to find the path for my call to service.  I think everyone should leap at least once in their lifetime!

Yoga myth:  "To be a good 'yogi' you have to have a quiet mind."  Being brave enough to be present to what is, quiet or not, makes you a yogi.  The label "good" is relative and impermanent, just like the ego.  It is the part of you underneath that label that is your true, perfect self.

Most influential mentor:  My past.  Exploring my past with a compassionate lens has enabled me to look forward down the path of healing and growth.

Party Pose: 8 angle pose - Astavakrasana 

I dream: a compassionate world, a healing culture and beautiful backpacking adventures.
