E-RYT 200, RYT 500, YAECP
Though I’d practiced off and on for years, yoga found me while I was a high school teacher. My employer arranged for yoga classes as a way to help teachers find stress relief. I was a workaholic and a long-time runner who never truly took time to stretch, rest, or recover. I left that first yoga class a completely new person. I began to practice daily, and made the decision to enroll in the Inspired Living yoga teacher training in 2017. I studied with Sara Cain-da Costa and Michele Tampa Hoag, graduated in June 2018, and started teaching the very next week. During the Covid-19 pandemic, I had the opportunity to train with Bhakti Yogshala based in Rishikesh, India and received my RYT 500 in September 2021.
Passionate about various styles of yoga, I love to teach power vinyasa, restorative, yin, slow flow, and deep stretch. I have taught all over the Charlotte Metro area in a variety of in-person and virtual settings, including studios, gyms, outdoor events, workshops, corporate programming, and private sessions. In 2022, I partnered with one of my mentors, Sara Cain-da Costa, to co-teach the Life Inspired 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Yoga Teacher Training Program.
I have a B.A. in English Language and Literature with a minor in secondary education and a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, both from Winthrop University. I love to combine my passion for yoga and writing by creating meditations to incorporate into my practice. My classes include a mindful variety of asana, pranayama, and meditation to help each student practice their own unique form of yoga.
I’d love to connect with you and join you on the mat!
