Yoga is a lifestyle. It is a method to create health and well-being from the inside out. Using 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 had 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 Yoga training in 2009 and have continued to do training and study annually with teachers in my area as well as travelling.
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 to learn hands on how to hold the space of a Mysore Room as well as adjusting. 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 currently practice with Kino MacGregor (2022)
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.

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.
