So many continuing ed courses and mini-  trainings in energy, anatomy, specific  populations, specific psychological concerns,  and other various topics that my friends did a  "no more training programs" intervention last  year.

Hometown:  Charleston, SC is home now. 

When I’m not teaching, you might find me:  playing with my son while we watch my man surf on Folly or in a coffee shop writing. 

My mantra:  May all beings everywhere be happy and free. 

My “at bat” song:  Love Is All Around by Joan Jett, which is the Mary Tyler Moore theme song, girl punk style.

In my class you can expect:  a blend of traditional and playful asana sequencing, grounded exploration of yoga philosophy, flow, twists, inversions, meditation, and a deep final relaxation. 

Badass moment:  writing the book that has been in my heart for years and publishing it, Living Life on Purpose!

Yoga myth:  so many but the myth that yoga is simply for stretching and relaxation is really bothersome.  Of course yoga can be relaxing and offer a great stretch, but the true practice is so much more than that. 

Most influential mentor:  Manorama, Andrea Boyd, Jeffrey Cohen, Molly Lennon Kenny, and Jules Febre. 

Party Pose:  Wild thing. 

I dream: of traveling the world with my man and our son.
