My yoga practice started in 2009 purely as a way to workout. I was already running, spinning, bouldering, strength training, boxing and swimming – obviously one more style of physical exercise was exactly what I needed. Despite my initial objective, subtle shifts began to take place as I continued to roll out my mat. I started to slow down. I started to get out of my head and into my body. I started to take better care of myself and discover an unwavering sense of self-worth. That’s when my perspective of yoga shifted from a mode of exercise to a healing art. Each practice offers me the opportunity to hold space and to show up for myself, exactly where I am.
I received my 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certification through Prana Power Yoga and joined the PPY teaching staff in 2012. I teach regularly at the Cambridge and Winchester studios; my classes bring focus to breath and challenge you to trust the strength and intuitive wisdom of your body. I love yoga because it’s a lifelong practice that reveals the pure light within us all. And I love teaching yoga because it provides the opportunity to make true connection.
