Yoga has been by my side through some of life's most challenging moments. From adolescence through my late 20s, I struggled with anxiety and depression and yoga saved my mental and physical well being. After teaching high school English for 7 years, I realized how powerful this ancient practice was in my daily life and how it could similarly benefit any age group suffering as I had. And so...
I decided to combine my love of being an educator and practicing yoga. I trained in San Diego, CA with Shawna Schenk, founder of the San Diego Yoga festival, to receive my RYT 200 certification in Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga. I teach group classes in my hometown of Wallingford and run an afterschool yoga club at Guilford High School for students.
My classes focus on the alignment of breath with movement, as well as the introspection of the practice - through meditation and body awareness in each physical posture. I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to teach yoga to others seeking healing, health, or just a few good AUM's.
