I've been stepping in front of classrooms since 2005. Because of this experience I feel uniquely suited to help students find their voice and comfort as a teacher. I began a career as a high school history teacher but have found my passion in the yoga studio. I feel at home guiding students in a dance of breath and movement, tuning in to what is happening in the present moment and hoping that at the end of it all they've learned a little bit about themselves and the nature of their bodies. My intention in leading this teacher training to to help students effectively and safely lead vinyasa yoga flows. In addition, my sincere hope is that all students in this teacher training will develop a passion for the practice, taking it off the mat and into their world.
I've had the pleasure of learning from Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers. In addition Doug Swenson and Scott Nanamura have helped to inform my yoga practice. I feel I have a solid foundation in both the yang and the yin forms of yoga.
I teach 5 weekly classes at The Studio in Reno in addition to many workshops. I'm an E RYT-200 and E RYT-500, and also certified to lead continuing education classes through the Yoga Alliance.
