I have been a yoga instructor since 2011 (RYT, M-HYI, HY therapist). My journey began with a desire to integrate prayer and exercise. Paired with a background in education, I discovered that teaching yoga was a homecoming to myself and my God-given gifts. It is a great love of mine!
In a personal yoga practice, I often combine vinyasa with yin. Incorporating breath into movement is a regular focus for me. When I have the opportunity to teach, my classes are thematically structured with music and message that mind, body, and spirit may be equally engaged — I believe it’s really much more than the yoga postures.
I have spent the last nine years shepherding leaders: writing and teaching curriculum on prayer/meditation/spiritual practices to Christ-centered yoga instructors and leaders in general. I am also a trained spiritual director whose passion is to hold sacred space for ministry leaders — that they might slow down and be with God, embodying holy and whole lives with God in spirit, soul, and body. Spiritual direction weaves its way into everything I do, particularly yoga classes and leadership development training.
I do offer private yoga therapy sessions or private yoga instruction for individuals or small groups. Each session is custom-designed for your needs and includes meditation, yoga, and take-home practice. Individual fee is based on donation ($65-100/hr). Contact me to schedule your yoga session.
