“Letting go doesn’t mean forgetting, it just means we stop carrying the energy of the past into the present.” - Yung Pueblo.
I began my yoga journey in 2010, in hopes of finding a healthy way to heal from a difficult trauma #MeToo. I was instantly amazed by the healing power of yoga, and the emotional release that came on my mat. Yoga gave me the strength to reclaim my body and the courage to love myself. Through yoga, I learned to find stillness, acceptance, and most of all, forgiveness. With a background in victim advocacy, I knew that I wanted to share this powerful gift of healing with victims, survivors, and others alike. I completed my 200 hour teacher training through Corepower Yoga in 2013 and completed my Reiki II training in 2018. I aim to create a safe space where students can reconnect to their inner spirt and find freedom through physical expression. When I’m not on my mat, I enjoy reading, traveling, gardening, and spending time with my husband, two step-daughters, and my puppy, Scotch.
