a LITTLE ABOUT ME
World traveler with a bit of a yoga infatuation
I encountered the power of yoga in 2006 while exploring countries solo with an empty wallet. Having no exposure to yoga, I discovered an apprenticeship at an international Yoga Ashram. Intimidated at first, but with an open mind, my practice of Yoga began. Self-discovery takes me to the wildest places. Frolicking in nature, experiencing other cultures and landscapes, and adventuring to the unknown is how I feel most connected and alive.
I am an experienced teacher trainer and mentor with over 2,000 hours of formal training in all kinds of styles. I live to teach and guide those who want to teach. My classes are lighthearted with an unexpected blend, uniting different techniques into creative sequences that lovingly push and expand students just beyond what they may think is possible. Whether is it grounding down, igniting the fire, or sparking joy; this practice is magic if you understand how to use it.
Before launching Yeah Yoga, I was the managing partner of a yoga studio in Ohio and mentored students in several 200hr teacher trainings. I created customized yoga programs that were implemented in schools for students with special needs, a center for adults with disabilities, and enhanced performance for sports teams.
LEARN FROM TEACHERS YOU VIBE WITH
I am grateful for all of my teachers. A special shout out to Gabriel Halpern; a yoga therapeutics master and Dharma truth speaker, named by Yoga Journal in the top “10 Most Influential Yoga Teachers in America.” I apprenticed and studied therapeutics for 3 years; in addition, I assisted health psychologist, Cheryl Hurst, who offers integrative yoga therapy for those with Neurological conditions at The Yoga Circle.
