I've been teaching yoga in Kentucky since 2013. My rejuvenating yoga classes use a gentle flow to stretch muscles and build core strength and balance. Fundamental postures, breath-work and relaxation techniques are taught, making my classes great for all skill levels. I teach a Taoist style, using the Eastern yoga influence of Qigong. It is a perfect complement to my yoga classes, especially for those who aren't comfortable with the yoga poses or have limited mobility.
I came to yoga several years after injuring my back in a fall. Yoga helped me heal my body, mind and spirit. With yoga, I am a better version of myself. I adamantly believe that yoga works for everyone, wherever they are in life, if they are open to it. It is such a delight for me to share yoga with others, allowing them to discover their own one-of-a-kind practice.
My greatest teaching pleasure is a weekly class I lead at a local women's prison. It has been a deeply rewarding experience, and I am extremely thankful to have this opportunity to reach this group of women who otherwise might not practice yoga. This moving experience inspired me to pursue special training to teach trauma informed yoga to those who are incarcerated, have addictions, and/or are physically limited.
I also teach other yoga styles, including Hatha, Yin, Chair, Restorative, power and wall assisted. In addition to yoga, I coach classes for Yoga Shred (yoga with HIIT), POUND Fitness, and cardio workouts using hand weights and balance sticks. All of my classes are designed to engage the mind, condition the entire body and have fun.
In my free time, I also practice aerial yoga and paddleboard yoga.
