I began practicing yoga at Kripalu Yoga Center when I was in high school. There was something so compelling about the way people moved and interacted there - a sense of calm and openness that I was drawn to. I began practicing yoga regularly in my 30s and became a certified yoga teacher in 2010. I love teaching yoga because I learn something new every day through my interactions with students, other teachers, and my studies of yoga texts. My classes always include pranayama and focus on mindful and intuitive movement. As we connect with our breath, we find the union of mind, body and spirit, and that's when the magic happens both on and off the mat! When I'm not practicing or teaching yoga, I love to go for hikes, run with my running group, and snuggle up at home with my husband, kids and cockapoo Snow.
