When I first took a yoga class in 2009, I thought it was about stretching and building physical strength. Little did I realize that it was teaching me mind-body awareness. It wasn’t until I experienced the loss of my baby did this really hit home for me.  I was struggling to face the anger, sadness, and disappointment that comes along with grief.  It was a time in my life when I felt so emotionally vulnerable and raw that it made me question my worth and abilities.  Yoga helped me connect to my true self. It has taught me the wisdom of self-awareness and compassion. I also use yoga as self-care given the stressful work that I do in the mental health field.  I teach my yoga classes the way that I practice. Therefore, when attending my class, expect a calming and relaxing practice that focuses on self-inquiry, body awareness, and self-compassion. 

I live in Atlanta, GA with my husband and son.  I enjoy running, cooking (former healthy eating chef), playing with son, spending time with husband, and having get togethers with friends and family.
