A little bit about me

As a Hatha yoga instructor, I strive to create accessible and safe classes that can be modified for every ability. It’s important that everyone in my classes feel comfortable and included. I love to teach with props so students understand that it’s normal and helpful to use them in their practice too.

I have practiced yoga for over 25 years (teaching since 2020) and sharing my love of yoga as well as the benefits it offers has been valuable for my students- especially those who were tentative about trying a class. Getting them to step onto the mat is the first phase. Once they are there, I hope they begin to understand that yoga is more than just the poses. 

In 2021, I completed a 40-hour Fascial Yin Yoga certification as well as Reiki Level 1. I hope to complete Reiki Level 2 in early 2022. In 2020, I completed a 20-hour Yoga for Seniors certification and I now teach seniors! Whether it’s on a mat or chair yoga, I’ve got you covered. I am also First Aid & CPR-AED Level- C certified from the Red Cross.

I’m an active recreational athlete and long-distance runner. I’ve run eight marathons, seven Around the Bay 30K races (training for my eighth) and numerous half marathons in the past 10 years. I’ve been an avid golfer and snowboarder. In addition to running and yoga, I can also be found on the Pilates Reformer or my rowing machine. I’m currently working toward a Marathon Running Coach certification with NAASFP.
