I am a 200 hour RYT who loves to share my passion with youth and adults. Currently teaching predominantly Hatha yoga, I focus on the connection of movement to breath, alignment, and presence in the moment. I teach private yoga for adults and in after school yoga programs for youth. Continuing training will focus on yoga therapy and prenatal yoga. I integrate certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils into my yoga classes. As a doTerra Wellness Advocate and Yoga Teacher, I am living out my purpose of connecting people to themselves, to each other and to nature.
My first experience with yoga was in 2003 in Northern California where the Pacific Ocean meets the Redwood Forest. I developed a love for the feeling yoga would leave with me. During practice, I could lose myself in the dance between movement and breath. I was ever so grateful to my teacher for that leftover yoga bliss at the end of class.
I feel at home on the mat and I have a natural tendency towards teaching so in the summer of 2014, I pursued my yoga teacher training back in my hometown - Tucson, Arizona and now I feel joy and reward to be able to teach and share yoga! I integrate essential oils into every yoga session I teach, as I have found that they are a very useful, natural tool to settle into the physical and mental practice of yoga. When I am not teaching yoga or essential oils, I am spending time with my husband and two young children, reading, creating, pondering and dancing.
