I have been practicing yoga regularly for over 7 years, becoming certified as a 200 hour (RYT) through the Yoga Alliance in 2016. The practice of yoga is the “vitamin pill” that grounds my life, energizes my body, and improves every aspect of life. I am passionate about sharing the transformative benefits of yoga with students. My personal yoga philosophy is grounded in service to the student. My goal is to create a calm, welcoming environment where students feel free to express themselves without judgement. Each class follows an intelligent yoga sequence that enhances flexibility, balance, strength, and relaxation. By incorporating breath and movement we relax the mind bringing us to a more peaceful state enhancing our overall well-being. Through the practice of yoga, we find our edge, learn to soften our expectations, and make room for growth. I hope to inspire and guide students as they take the lessons learned on their mat and weave them into a life lived more fully in the present moment with contentment and happiness. When not practicing yoga, you can find me in my flower garden, hiking and biking the trails of Wisconsin and beyond or enjoying a good book.
