Downtown Manager


I’ve always been passionate about living a healthy lifestyle physically, mentally and spiritually. I started yoga approximately 16 years ago as a supplement to my strength and endurance training as a marathoner and triathlete. Yoga became another form of moving meditation for me that I’ve always come back to. I’ve been fortunate to have many coaches and teachers throughout the years of training and racing who have shared a wealth of knowledge with me that has strengthened my mind/body connection. I’m excited to see where this journey will take me and the continued growth and knowledge as our bodies are ever changing and telling us what they need.

Favorite Pose

Downward Dog – It's everything all in one to me. Part inversion, strengthening and stretching the body. It can be challenging at times and restful by letting out a deep exhale.

Favorite Quote

"Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul."
– From the poem Desiderata by Max Ehrmann

Why I Love Dragonfly

Dragonfly provides a warm, non-judging environment and a sense of peace the minute I walk in. While peaceful, Dragonfly is also energizing with an abundance of positive energy by both members and staff. I also really LOVE the heat!
