After practicing and training in many forms/styles of yoga since 2000, she remains curious around each person’s movement and their unique journey to quiet the mind and loves it. You’ll feel her excitement rub off!
She has helped those of all ages, who thought they were “inflexible, tight, and stiff” find flexibility, establishing an enjoyable & sustainable yoga practice. Also, those who are challenged with quieting their minds to uncover their true nature, helping them find their personal practice and sangha (community.)
