I came to my first yoga class when I was in my twenties, and although I liked it, I never did it again. Then when I was in my 50’s I was reintroduced to yoga, and this time, life experiences caused me to be more open to the lessons of yoga. I enjoyed the peace of mind so much that I became an instructor. Originally, like most of us, I came to yoga for the physical benefits. Yoga does offer so many proven benefits– strength, flexibility, balance, improved circulation, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and weight control. But as I stayed, I learned the greater gifts of yoga. When you are on your mat, you are instructed to go inside to the deepest parts of you and see what is there. And if you commit to your practice, self discovery becomes a habit. And when you consistently listen to your mind and your body and the messages they send, you will like what you see. You are a perfect creation. And because you like yourself, you are inspired to take care of your body and to make healthier choices. It is all connected. Yoga is about self care. For me, seeing what my body can do has helped me develop courage and confidence and it continues to inspire me to keep trying in all areas of my life and to step out of my comfort zone. And seeing what you are made of is fun and it keeps you young. Besides working on flexibility, we strengthen our muscles because you want your muscles to move you and take weight off your spine and other joints.

I have been practicing yoga for 15 years as a way to balance out long distance running and cycling. My first teacher was in Saratoga Springs, NY and I will always be grateful for encouraging growth, awareness and most of all a sense of fun. As I began to understand more about yoga, I learned that the pose was just part of yoga and the breath and awareness began to cultivate a quest for more.
After a move cross-country to Colorado in 2016 I dove in a little deeper and finally decided to do a teacher training and was grateful that my teacher helped me complete this even through the difficulties of 2020 and a move to Arizona. I am thrilled to be able to bring this to others – to share these human experiences with others. When I’m not practicing yoga and mala-making I enjoy hiking, mountain biking, travelling and helping out with my family’s landscaping business here in Prescott.
I will be teaching
Slow Flow Yoga for Every Body
A class designed for all Levels and Every Body. This class has flow and connection to breath and will move from one pose to the next while being mindful of our bodies and how we all move differently. Our goal will be to rejuvenate the body while creating stillness in the mind through intention and awareness. There will be a slower cadence to pause and notice our individual experience during this 50 min/hour long class. Sun salutations, balancing poses and gentle strength poses will be in moderation but explored at your own pace. This class will leave you with the ‘Ahhhh’ feeling and grace that you’ve carved out this time for yourself.
