Asana Teacher & 300hr Yoga Teacher Training Facilitator
I am a holistic yoga therapy teacher who specializes in using a trauma sensitive-informed approach in my classes. Originally from Michigan, traveling around the world is a huge passion of my life and what has inspired me to discover the holistic ancient roots of yoga the last 10 years. I am also currently a graduate student at Colorado State University gaining my masters in Social Work and using yoga as a way to mindfully bridge the mind-body connection working with trauma survivors who are healing.
Yoga has become a lifestyle I am always excited to share with others on and off the mat. My intention is to provide people a safe and empowering opportunity and space to come to their mats to move their body, heal their mind and discover the power of their breath.
I have trained as a Reiki Master in shamanic practices in the sacred Andre mountains of Peru and taken my Tibetan bowl sound healing training in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal. I’ve received my 200-hour training with an Ayurveda focus at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala through School Institute Yoga. My trauma sensitive yoga training through Nosara Yoga Institute in Costa Rica, The Breathe Network, Street Yoga and Veterans Yoga Project in Chicago. My 500-hour yoga therapy training was in Siem Reap, Cambodia. It is an honor and a joy to learn and grow with different teachers, Masters, healers from around the world. I am also grateful to the students I come across on my path as we open our hearts to grow and bloom together.
