My yoga practice began around age 15 when my mom started teaching classes in our community. Yoga has been a guiding presence in my life since then, and I began teaching in 2005 while studying exercise science at the University of South Carolina. I got my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Texas Woman’s University in 2011, and became board-certified in orthopedics in 2013, and yoga was a steady presence in my life through all those years.
I completed my initial teacher training in Anusara Yoga, but my yoga training and interests have always been eclectic. I love to learn new practices, and explore and blend styles, but I have always been drawn to yoga emphasizing alignment, technique, and intelligent but creative sequencing. In 2016, I completed an advanced 500-hour teacher training with Christina Sell and Gioconda Parker and I was officially certified as a yoga therapist in 2017 through the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
I believe yoga fosters improved self-image, increased overall wellness, and transformation through self-exploration.
I love to integrate the technical aspects of my physical therapy training with the wisdom of yoga in ways that empower people to accept and celebrate not only their bodies, but the full scope of that which they presently and potentially offer in this life. I can’t wait to see you on the mat!
