Teacher, Heart Adventurer, Inspiratrice
Hi Everybody! I’m a lifelong educator, an E-RYT 500 & Tier 3 Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher—and my whole heart is for authentic connection. During my 20 years in high school classrooms, I saw the increasingly urgent social and emotional needs of my beloved students not being addressed within the standard curriculum. So, I pursued my yoga teacher certification and consciously infused mindfulness, self-inquiry and personal development elements into my social studies lessons.
Now, I facilitate the Baptiste Foundation’s Unstoppable Yoga for Youth Training Program which exists to create a resilient generation of children that use Baptiste Yoga as a life skill. As co-owner of Namaspa Yoga Community, co-founder of the Namaspa Foundation, and co-founder/owner of Evoke Energy Yoga, I lead lovingly fierce classes, workshops, retreats and teacher trainings that invite all humans to break open their forbidden happiness and lead more empowered lives by digging into the mud of the moment and challenging the self-limiting beliefs that thwart and constrain them.
I believe that “together the teacher and the taught do the teaching”, and my playful and comically introspective offerings leave space for my students to be in discovery, to grow, transform and heal.
