YOGA INSTRUCTOR 200 E-RYT /Teaching since 2009

For me yoga is a lifestyle. I have used this as a method to create health and well-being from the inside out. I view yoga as a way to heal yourself and to bring balance into your life. 

I found my way to yoga in 2006. I began like many do…in a gym. Yoga ignited my fire for personal growth and transformation. I initially started with a practice and teaching style rooted in Vinyasa. The yoga practice helped me deal with trauma and start my journey, but that was just the beginning. I went on to complete my first Vinyasa Yoga training in 2009 at the Asheville Yoga Center and completed my 240 hour training in 2010. I have continued to do training and study annually with teachers in my area as well as traveling. 

Currently, my main focus and practice is Ashtanga Yoga. I have maintained a dedicated Ashtanga practice since February 2016. I initially studied and trained under Marsha Mcknight at Balance Yoga Atlanta from 2007-2019. I completed an apprenticeship where I taught alongside her in her Saturday Mysore classes. It was a wonderful opportunity to learn hands-on adjusting as well as how to hold the space of a Mysore Room. I continued learning and invested in my practice and teaching by studying with Taylor Hunt. I studied with Taylor from 2016-2021 and completed multiple Ashtanga Primary Series Intensives, was a Trini Foundation teacher to those in recovery as well as an ambassador, and completed a Mentorship program in 2020.

I then transitioned to study solely under Kino MacGregor in 2021. I make multiple trips to study with her in Miami and when she travels the southeast. I have completed an Ashtanga Intensive as well as maintained a relationship with my teacher through private lessons. 

My hope is to share yoga with those who are looking for transformation on and off the mat; specifically recovery from Addictions. The Ashtanga yoga method has been paramount in my own recovery process.

Additional Ashtanga teachers I have studied with: David Swenson, Tim Feldmann, David Robson, Laruga Glasser, Paul Dallaghan, Manju Jois, Sharath Jois. Vinyasa teachers: Stephanie Keach, Tiffany Cruikshank, Neda Draupadi Honarvar, David Regelin, Gillian St. Clair, Gina Minyard, Brian Kest.

Thank you to all teachers past, present and future.

When I am not on a yoga mat or behind a desk you can find me hiking with my husband or snuggling with my pups. We have a quiet life south of Atlanta on 6 acres and I am very very grateful.
