Our Teachers



My yoga journey began sixteen years ago when I started practicing yoga for stress relief while my three children were teenagers.


Gradually I realized that yoga was more than just exercise on a mat, but instead, a way of life off the mat. 


I took my yoga practice to a higher level when I completed a RYT-200 teacher training. 


I look forward to sharing my knowledge with my fellow yogi students. 


Off the mat I enjoy gardening, raising chickens, and quilting. I believe the best medicines for a healthy life are fresh air and sunshine, walks, healthy eating, and  spending time with friends and family.

RYT-300 Hour

I am a dog mom of two rescues, hospital discharge planner at St. Joseph's Hospital Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation, and a HUGE Star Wars fan!

Yoga is my passion - learning, teaching, and talking about yoga - sharing what I've learned from my own personal practice both on and off the mat! I have been a yoga instructor since 2017. 

Yoga is: Unity. Yoga is where I've bee, where I am going, and where I want to be. It's who I am and why I strive to be better every day. "The Force is Strong!" 

My goal as an instructor, guide, and forever student is to share my passion and the knowledge that I've acquired with every beautiful soul I can. As I guide my students, they always teach me.

I pray this beautiful and vast practice will touch the lives of my students as it did mine. Yoga saved me from my untrue self and has taught me about my true 


self. It's taught me to be content, how to find comfort within discomfort, be strong and in control, when to let go, and how to have devotion and dedication. Sharing this with others is a gift. It is like sharing a piece of a magical universe and watching the stars light up. I can't wait to practice with you!
