Instructor

The root of all my inspiration comes from a constant curiosity of the mind, body, spirit connection. I am a registered yoga teacher who has been teaching for 7 years. I did my Hatha training with Ted Grand and Jessica Roberts co-founders of Moksha Yoga International, and Vinyasa Yoga training with Ryan Leir Owner and Creator of One Yoga. I am also certified in Prenatal Yoga through Kathleen Podiluk, and certified Yin Yoga with Bernie Clark. I am a professional Doula and have been educated in postpartum care. I teach yoga to provide a gateway for all women to feel empowered from within. I support women through pregnancy and birth because I was supported. To be truly supported without judgement is the most empowering gift you can offer another woman.

Prenatal Yoga

The intention for this class is to create a safe container where you can connect with yourself and your growing baby. This practice will focus on a balance of strength and relaxation for all stages of pregnancy. We will practice breath awareness and postures that will benefit you during pregnancy and labor.  As a professional Doula I will provide depth to each practice sharing resources and comfort measures through pregnancy and into labor.

All stages of pregnancy and levels of practice welcome.
