I’m a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT), experienced & registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500), and Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist with over 23 years of experience practicing and studying yoga. As a mother of two teenagers, I know what it’s like to navigate the personal transitions like parenting teens, changing careers, managing a chronic disease, and navigating stress and anxiety that comes with every day life. My mission is to use traditional yoga practices to support you on your personal journey to feel better in body, mind, and spirit.
I love working with clients who want to use yoga to restore their physical, mental, and emotional health. I’m a devoted student in the Viniyoga lineage, which is steeped in ancient tradition and focuses on using yoga therapeutically to address your unique needs and goals.
My own yoga therapy journey started when I began to struggle with the physical and emotional effects of anxiety as a teenager. My anxiety manifested as digestive issues, headaches, disturbed sleep and frequent nightmares. These patterns continued into adulthood, and I ultimately developed ulcerative colitis, a chronic disease of the large intestine. Yoga therapy helped me successfully manage my anxiety and IBD. My ulcerative colitis has been in remission for over a year and my anxiety is well managed with healthier lifestyle choices, some Western medicine, and daily yoga practice.
I’ve worked with a Yoga therapist for years to support my own mental and physical health, and I continue to work under the guidance of my mentor, Anita Claney. The Viniyoga model allows practitioners to continue to be both a student and a guide for others. My own experience with yoga has made me passionate about supporting clients, like you, who are struggling with physical pain, anxiety, and chronic conditions.
