I teach yoga because I believe in our body’s creative potential and power to nurture, heal, and transform itself mentally, physically, and spiritually in every given moment. I know this to be true as my own body has done all of these things through my experience with yoga. Once I opened the door there was no going back - or forward - there was only healing in the present. I discovered that doing it the hard way - or living life - didn’t have to be so hard. Now, instead of checking out, I check in. I want to share that very moment with you. My intention is to provide a space for you to learn, grow, explore, discover, and create. I encourage you to turn inward and get to know your core being. By healing from center, building strength and practicing balance we begin to create our own freedom. Then, in this self-awareness, we can begin to physically move more freely and find reprieve within our bodies, on and off the mat. Any environment becomes our own creative environment and we can envision our heart’s desires into our own reality.
My light-hearted yoga classes are offered with intuition, creative energy, attention to detail, discipline, passion, and designed to inspire the free spirit in us all. Having worked hard to build a strong body awareness inside out myself, I enjoy helping others check in with their own rhythm and flow, using breath to encourage the personal sense of overall wellbeing by moving intuitively from within.
I enjoy teaching in the beautiful outdoors, especially in the parks - with Yama Yoga sponsored Yoga in the Parks MKE...be it yoga or my ballet/dance inspired yoga fitness class - coreYOGrAphy. I have an insatiable thirst for yoga philosophy and anatomy that will likely be infused in my classes along with the powerful uplifting or calming benefits of aromatherapy using essential oils. Mostly, joining the Yama Yoga family fills my heart so much that the overflowing love will spill over, fueling my desire to build our wonderful community one breath at a time.
Off the mat, I am either playing with my rescued blue eye-d husky girl -Spira, enjoying family, travelling with my love, seeking good music and art, designing my own sustainable athleisure/dance/yoga inspired clothing line, teaching sewing/creative wellness workshops, and taking on special occasion freelance projects.
