She has also taught a variety of group training classes including strength training, core training, yoga, and meditation.
In 2008, she Introduced yoga to both her personal and professional life, bridging a gap between her physical and spiritual worlds. This allowed her to take a traumatic event in her life and dig deeper into her practice. It allowed her to complete a healing process that truly went full circle.
That opportunity also encouraged her to become a container for practitioners who had also suffered trauma and to become a facilitator for them as they embarked on their own yogic journey that could lead them down the path of healing.
She enjoys and welcomes working with people at all levels and stages in their yogic journey. Whether someone comes for a vinyasa flow, Hatha, restorative, chair yoga, yin, all-levels, or meditation practice…she is there to guide and facilitate this experience for them.
She considers having the opportunity to hold space for a variety of individuals through her yoga, and mindfulness meditation practice an honor and a privilege – “I am dedicated to doing good and serving others as much as I possibly can since I feel this is my dharma” – my purpose in life.”
She is married to her best friend, Haakon. They have three playful and amazing dogs: Lucky (14 y/o Ridgeback/Shar-Pei mix), Milo (11 y/o Labernese Mix), and Blue (8 y/o Ridgless Ridgeback). We enjoy hiking, biking, and unplanned adventures. I enjoy crochet, knitting, and reading in my spare time.
