I am a yoga instructor and photographer living in the Napa Valley.
My yogic journey has taken several twists, turns, and inversions over the last 12 years, but once I began to dedicate my time and energy to the practices, my path became clear.
I received my 200 hour certification in the Raja Yoga tradition at Yoga Community in Sonoma in 2015, and have been lucky enough to practice and learn with amazing teachers in the Napa Valley and San Francisco. In addition, I have also completed a Yoga Nidra teacher training with Ashley Sharp, as well as Chelsea Jackson Roberts’ Inclusivity Training for Yoga Teachers, offered through Yoga Journal. I am always looking to expand my knowledge and am grateful to the many teachers and students that offer me opportunities to learn, daily.
Through yoga, I feel a sense of empowerment and strength of mind, body, and spirit, and through motherhood, I’ve regained my understanding of the importance of leaving room for a bit of play! My hope is to help students find their own inner and outer strength, as well as experience the wonderful community that yoga can bring. I put in the work every class to ensure my students feel welcome and supported, no matter what. Yoga is for EVERY body, and the only thing you need is a willingness to step onto the mat and meet yourself.
Currently, I teach Hatha, Vinyasa, and Restorative classes throughout the Napa Valley.
I am an RYT 200 registered with the Yoga Alliance.
These are a few of my favorite things: singing on long road trips, scrolling through pictures of kittens, camping in Big Sur, dance parties in my living room, puns (all day, every day), cuddling with my sons on cozy mornings, coffee from Ritual Coffee Roasters, elephants, ‘le petit dejeuner’ in Paris (because a croissant and 1/2 a baguette with butter is never not awesome), playing with arm balances, that moment when I fall down but burst out laughing (often connected to arm balances!), making my husband laugh at my faux English accents…
