I’m a joyful, spiritual, and socially conscious practitioner. Yoga is a practice, a way of being, I endeavor to honor as I share it with others. I enthusiastically welcome all identities, bodies, and experience-levels to practice with me. I love holding space and working with newcomers. Both group and private sessions are filled with invitations (not expectations) to move with intention, connect movement and breath, play, discover, and release. This is your practice. Yoga is the teacher.
I’ve relocated to Omaha, NE where you can find me practicing at Pranam Yoga Shala and starting December 15, 2021 leading Yin+Restorative on Wednesday nights! (scroll for more info)
In Washington, DC prior to the start of the covid19 pandemic, I was honored to work with Faith Hunter and the amazing community of teachers and practitioners at Embrace Yoga DC (now closed). I led Embrace Flow, Restorative, and Yoga + Social Justice. I also led Gentle, Restorative, Yin, and All Levels Flow group classes at Yoga Heights and subbed various class formats at Honest Soul Yoga (Falls Church and West Springfield). I also led classes for children in schools, and parents and children in community centers, through Breathing Space. I lead sessions on-site at companies for their staff and clients, and conduct home practice with individuals at their residence and mine. On March 15, 2020, I began hosting free practice on Zoom. My Embrace Yoga studio classes eventually transitioned online and I led practice through Spring 2021. I also promoted the online practices of the amazing Valerie Rucker and Clifford Cartel (UPDATE: now practicing online and in studios)!
