I have studied diverse yoga styles for over 15 years. I approach yoga as a process of self-discovery, acceptance, and transformation that builds balance, strength and flexibility in both the body and spirit. To me it’s important that yoga is practiced with a sense of play and deep enjoyment.” She now teaches Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga, Restorative, Hot/Heated and Yin.
