I found yoga in high school as a way to add to my athleticism and fitness. I wanted to be flexible. It grew with me through college into a practice that helped me look deeper at my holistic well-being. My practice of yoga expanded to my entire life and way of existing.
When I struggled with health issues, chronic pain, and anxiety, it was yoga and meditation that gave me the window into another way of living. I used my practice to cope with what was happening. I became a personal trainer as a way to help others, but quickly sensed clients were seeking was deeper than physical aesthetics. I wanted to share the holistic approaches and mindset I had found.
Ayurveda came to me on sacred ground. My teacher, Katie Silcox, is a translator of complex ancient sciences and she spoke to my heart. Studying Ayurveda was a relief. It put factual information and western science into a context I already intuitively felt and followed. It is not woo-woo, although I gladly accept subtle practice of “woo-woo” in my life! We all need a little magic! But Ayurveda was and is something I can touch, feel, and see. It’s a healing and preventative medicine to teach us how to be our own healers.

Teaching yoga was always on my path, but finding the right teachers was important to me. I waited for a heart-centered training focused on the yoga that had become my life’s practice. Studying with world-renowned teachers Rachel Brathen and Lara Heimman was more than I could have imagined. It kept the heart and core (#morecore) of the yoga I loved, but is rooted in anatomy and structure of functional physical therapy. My training showed me the other side - healing my body through yoga, not just coping. I can’t wait to share it with you.
