Yoga snuck up on me. I spent a good 3-4 years taking classes here and there because I knew it was something I should be doing but I could never really get into it. And then I moved to Charlotte, the land of amazing yoga, and yoga sunk its teeth into me hard. Before I knew it I couldn’t stay off of my mat. Yoga brought me previously unexperienced levels of self-discovery and personal growth and changed me in physical and emotional ways that I never thought possible.
I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2011 at Y2 Yoga. Here in Charlotte I practice with Grace Morales, Suzanne Bergen and Johnna Smith. I have studied ashtanga with David Williams, anatomy with David Keil, acro yoga with Scott Cooper, inversion flow with Dice Iida-Klein and Briohny Smyth and much more.
My yoga practice of choice is vinyasa flow and ashtanga. I especially enjoy all things backbends, arm balancing and being upside down! I am SUPER passionate about empowering my students around their physical strength and seeing their unlimited light, power and potential. My classes feature a strong flow with uplifting messaging and music. We will laugh, we will cry, we will sweat.
I am the marketing director at Y2 Yoga at Om Yoga here in the Charlotte area. You can find my teaching schedule here. I also offer private sessions that can be anything from a traditional practice to breaking down inversions, challenging poses, backbends, etc. I am now booking travel for workshops through 2015. Please inquire for more information on workshop offerings and rates.
