Teaching since:
2012

I come from a clinical social work and psychology background and hold a master’s degree in social work, concentrating in child and adolescent mental health. During my study and work in the mental health field, I pursued my personal practice of yoga as a source of inner quiet, connection, and peace. Having experienced powerful benefits from yoga, I felt inspired to pursue yoga teacher training in order to share these positive experiences with others. I completed an in-depth two year teacher training program which prepared me to teach a vast array of students and gave me the knowledge necessary to accommodate for special needs and medical considerations.

I began teaching yoga in 2012. Since that time I have continued to study extensively and have instructed over 1,000 hours of classes and workshops. I specialize in teaching adaptive yoga for children with medical and special needs and gentle, mindful yoga for adults.

I have experience working with:
ADHD
Anxiety
Autism Spectrum and Developmental Disabilities
Cancer patients and survivors
Cerebral Palsy
Depression
Emotional and behavioral challenges (children & teens)
Joint pain / Arthritis
Multiple Sclerosis
Physical limitations / limited mobility

Yoga Alliance is the largest nonprofit association representing the yoga community. Our mission is to spread the power of yoga one person at a time.

We believe that the individual experience of yoga is of paramount importance, and are committed to supporting the passage of yoga from trainer to teacher, teacher to student, and student to aspiring yogi. Our role as the national support organization for the yoga community is to ensure that the practice of yoga will keep growing, so that more people will connect with yoga and be transformed. As an organization we keep several core values at heart: service, excellence, transparency, learning and community.
