I have been practicing asana since 1996 and teaching since 2004. Known for skill, clarity and authenticity, my teaching style is a blend of functional alignment, dynamic movement and inspiration that creates a bridge between the hard work on the mat and off. With a mix of no-nonsense direction and some good ol’ humor, I aim to create space for each student to do their individual work, while also cultivating a strong sense of community to practice within. I am dedicated to making yoga accessible for everybody by making the difficult doable and the doable difficult.
Both my personal practice and teaching style are heavily shaped by the Anusara yoga methodology, Tantric yoga philosophy and ongoing studies with my highly skilled and deeply inspiring teachers: Christina Sell, Desiree Rumbaugh, Darren Rhodes, Noah Maze, Douglas Brooks and all of their teachers and their teachers’ teachers.
I am proud to be from Boston, where I live with my daughter & partner, and our cat Mew. I am also fortunate to have a spunky mom nearby and my sister, nieces and nephews in the area.
