I came to yoga like many of us – as a seeker. Not even knowing I was looking. The questions that motivated the original yogis – Who am I? Why am I here? What is my place in this vast mystery? – prodded me as I stumbled onto the yogic path via a class with Monique Maxwell in 2000. I have been a dedicated student since and began teaching in 2003. In addition my 200 hour training at Yoga Center of Minneapolis and Ashtanga teacher training with David Swenson, I study regularly with Kino MacGregor and Tim Feldman and have studied with many renowned teachers including: Seane Corne, Shiva Rea, Ana Forrest, Tim Miller, Michael Stone, Rod Stryker, Matthew Sweeney and Rodney Yee.
Ultimately though, my practice and teaching style have evolved out of the struggles, joys, insights and experiences on my mat and in my life. I believe that yoga is an experiential discipline and that I must teach from authentic truth in order to be effective. Hearsay just doesn’t transmit.
My style is playful and challenging with a keen eye to alignment and a strong ability to convey the energetic subtlety of postures and transitions, helping my students feel their yoga practice bloom from a deeply rooted core to a jubilant flower.
