I encourage people who love to move by offering creative sequencing rooted in functional biomechanics, so they can (re)discover their evolving mind and body every day.

I’m a lifelong athlete, an anatomy & physiology geek, and a lover of yoga philosophy, all which inform my classes.  My classes are challenging, yet accessible, and may awaken long lost muscles and forgotten joys.  No class sequence is ever the same, but for sure you’ll build into interesting postures, receive yoga philosophy, and be supported no matter what you choose on your mat that day.

I discovered yoga at 15, in the middle of my competitive sports years: it was the yin I was severely missing both physically and emotionally, while still challenging me in the ways I loved about tennis and running.  Although I continued my tennis career until I was 20, I had this nagging feeling that my highly competitive approach to sport wasn’t quite in sync with the non-harming spirit I connected with on my mat. This led me to put my racquet down, and dive deeper into yoga’s roots.

Growing up near Spokane, I lived in Nashville for a bit, then headed to Chicago (where I trained and taught for 16 years), and finally the Seattle area, where I continue to study, practice and expand my offerings.
