Yoga is my greatest teacher, without I would be a huge asshole. Some days I still am but at least I can see that I am. Every time I come to the mat it's like coming home. I feel the most inspiration when I am moving and breathing. Yoga is a vacation from my mind, we could all use more breaks from the monotony and repetition of our thoughts.
Who or what inspires you?
My teachers. My husband. My children, the possibility of who they will become and how they will become it. Sunsets, and sunrises. The unpredictability of the universe. Music that you can feel in your bones!
Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style:
Honest. Surprising. Fun.
Where are you the most fearlessly authentic in your life?
In my marriage.
What is something not a lot of people know about you?
Lately I can handle changes surprisingly well!

Vinyasa Flow - All Levels
Dynamic flow-based yoga. Recommended for those having a familiarity with Sun Salutations A and B.
Power Vinyasa flow is a rigorous, sweaty yoga practice stemming from the ashtanga tradition. Poses are held for shorter periods of time and will link one breath with motion, creating a dynamic and fluid ‘meditation in motion.’ This is a hot, sweaty fun practice often set to fun, fluid, dynamic music. You will leave inspired and ready to shine off the mat!
Room heated to 85-88 degrees.
Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is a powerful practice of guided relaxation that offers great healing potential for the body, mind and spirit. First, prepare the physical body through pranayama (conscious breathing exercises) and a few yin postures to ground and create inner awareness. Once the body is ready for rest, experience a 40-minute meditation while lying in savasana. Explore this opportunity to exist between wake and slumber — where all things are possible. Bring any props (blanket, eye pillow, bolster, etc.) that create a comfortable and safe space for you to practice with ease and go deep within. Great for all levels.
Follow the Yogi Fridays!
This class is a twist on the yogic tradition where students come to practice with a teacher at sunrise. Teachers and students move through traditional sun salutations together and then create a dynamic flow-based class to ambient morning beats to greet the day free and clear. This experience is a great way to connect to the community and your fellow yogi’s. Breathing and moving together reminds us that we are more the same than we are different and through this connection we light up the day! Every class is different yet accessible for all those willing to listen to their body.
Our bodies are a hard drive for everything we do in life, and its time to hit the reset button. Make time for the sweetness of surrender. In this two hour full body yin experience we will have the space to relax and release. We will to create a meditative mind using the supportive props in Yin to create physical and emotional support. You will leave feeling grounded, connected, restored and relaxed.
