I was born and raised here in Portland, Oregon and I’ve never moved away; a rare breed, indeed. I have a degree in Psychology. I love working with the public, volunteering, and traveling. In addition to yoga, my passion is handcrafting soy and beeswax candles.
I’ve been practicing yoga since 2000 and loving it! I received my 200 hour Yoga Alliance teaching certificate in Vinyasa Yoga through Core Power in March of 2015. I also took their 50 hour extensions program. I received my 100 hour Hatha certificate through Hot Yoga for Life in November of 2015.
My classes are intended to provide students with a safe and fun environment to have their own practice. I encourage students to let their bodies tell them where to go, taking a full expression or a modification, for example. We will aim to collectively focus on the breath and stay in the present moment, all while giving our bodies a good work out.
