Yoga is for every body – regardless of flexibility or fitness levels. My comprehensive classes address the needs of the body, mind and spirit, allowing for a peaceful state of being. I combine creative sequencing with a spirit of playfulness and intuition. You will leave the mat refreshed, nourished and inspired. I completed my Hatha Yoga 200-hr RYT course in Kathmandu, Nepal in 2017.

Yoga has been an important part of my life since I was a student in college.  I came to it as a tool for dealing with stress and anxiety.  I incorporate movement and breath as part of my counseling techniques and specialize in yin, restorative, and yoga for athletes.  I have been a certified yoga instructor for several years and have taught a course at St. Mary's Ryken for girls as well as conditioning for athletic teams. I currently teach in the Leonardtown community at local gyms and boutique fitness centers, as well as offering private lessons.
