ABOUT ME

I believe that yoga can help us access and claim love, acceptance, connection and other aspects of the Heart that are our birthright, our inheritance as humans.  I incorporate mantra and meditation, alignment work in the postures, dynamic and restorative sequencing elements, breath awareness, some corny jokes, and pep talks in my classes.  It is my hope that any one of these aspects of the practice can serve you as a pathway inward, to a deeper and more loving relationship with yourself.  May that lead us to skilled action in the world we share.

I am certified at the 500-hour level thru the San Marcos School of Yoga (2017 - San Marcos, TX) and Yoga Yoga (2013 - Austin, TX) and am registered with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT® 200, RYT® 500, YACEP® (I am approved to offer teachers Continuing Education course credit).  I am grateful to have incredible teachers to learn from, including my long-time mentor, Karlie Lemos. I would not be the teacher and student I am without my teachers, Christina Sell and Gioconda Parker.  The inspiration and wisdom from their lineage of teachings is invaluable to my life of practice. I also hold two degrees from Auburn University: BA in Art and BSBA in Marketing--War Eagle!


I grew up in Florence, Alabama on the Tennessee River.  After college, I spent a few years in Chattanooga, Tennessee, before moving to Austin, Texas where I lived for nearly 9 years—the last 5 of which I spent steeped in care by the Mantra community.  I have very recently (Feb 2021) moved back to Chattanooga to be closer to family and old friends who are my family.  It feels so good to be home, y’all.  I enjoy a good hike, a leisurely dinner party, pulling weeds, and hanging with my two naughty dogs, Poppy the Boxer and Bess the Cow-Dog.
