When teaching, I honor all levels and abilities and tailor each class to the specific needs of clients.
In 2012, I graduated from Three Sisters Yoga 200hr Teacher Training, a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School and have been a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) ever since. In addition, I became Pil-oga-robic (POR) certified in 2013, which incorporates Pilates, yoga and cardio into one fun and sustainable workout. I have been teaching yoga and other fitness classes consistently since 2013.
I grew up playing sports, adventuring in rivers and mountains and hiking in Montana. I later pursued yoga as a means to stay active, find balance and manage the day to day stress we all face in this busy world. For me, yoga is not only a necessary staple for health, but a true love. My current yoga practice focuses on alignment-based vinyasa flow, meditation and finding a balance between the mind, body and spirit. Through a consistent yoga practice, I believe anyone can reveal the profound healing nature of one’s own body.
In 2014, my passion for holistic healing lead me to pursue a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM). I will graduate in 2017. I strive to incorporate sustainable movement and ancient healing traditions into my own life, and I love sharing this passion with the community.
I believe movement, building community and being supported are keys to many people’s happiness in life and I like being a part of this for my clients. Helping clients cultivate a healthy, resilient mind and body, free from pain is one of my goals as a yoga teacher.
When I’m not teaching yoga, I spend a lot of my free time studying acupuncture and herbs. I always find time to travel, play in the great outdoors, garden and spend time with friends and family.
