Trainings / Certifications:  RYT-200
200-hr Yoga Teacher Training:
Urban Yoga Charleston - Charleston, SC

Hometown:  Gloucester, Va.

When I’m not teaching, you might find me:  arts editing at Charleston City Paper, walking my dogs, playing cribbage with my fiance (it’s fun, I promise), and drinking beer … anywhere it’s served.

My mantra:  Be here now.

My “at bat” song:  without fail, T.I.’s “You Know What It Is”

In my class you can expect:  Attention to breath and alignment, flowing from your foundation.

Badass moment:  I feel badass when I make connections with other people — opening yourself up is terrifying!

Yoga myth:  #yogaeverydamnday … Rest days are important, too.  

Most influential mentor:  My sister — she teaches me selflessness and gratitude every day.

Party Pose:  Drop backs, back bends (anything that scares my mom)

I dream: helping one person go from “no way, yoga!” to “this practice serves me.”
