Welcome, Friends.

I have been called to teach. It’s where I feel centered, strong, calm; authentic and free. In guiding you through your practice, my goal isn’t to actually teach you anything, but to remind you of what you already know. To reawaken within you the truth that you already have everything you need; that you are perfect as you are; and that you can trust your own wisdom. To remind you that you have the power to bring your life into balance and heal yourself.

Let’s experience the joy of physical movement together, balancing our bodies and our energies, and then bringing that equanimity off our mats and into our lives. Not just practicing yoga, but living yoga in the world. Join me as we allow our physical bodies to “teach” and nourish our spirits, in practices that empower each of us to live into our best selves and bring our unique gifts out into the world in all their magnificent glory.

To JK: For showing me what a true partner is. For being an unrelenting cheerleader. For wrapping me in so much unconditional love that I could finally heal myself.

I am a dedicated practitioner of yoga, meditation and journaling. An avid lover of life and movement (biking, tennis, hiking, SUP, kayaking, dance). A happily divorced Mom of two amazing teenage boys and a joyous co-parent. Former distance runner & former attorney (I literally ran away from a life that did not bring me joy!) Lover of books and ideas. Lifelong learner.
