My Teaching Style

My goal is to create both a physically and mentally challenging yoga sequence, one that will encourage you to test the boundaries of your practice. I offer plenty of time to deepen into poses allowing you to slowly and mindfully move and grow within each pose while using breath to feel a true mind and body connection.

Experience

I began my yoga journey with Dragonfly when the doors opened back in 2011. At the time my routine usually consisted of lifting weighs and cardio of some sort, typically running as I felt this gave me the best results for staying fit. I noticed Dragonfly one day while out on a run and never gave it much thought.....that is until January rolled around and being a fair weathered runner, I didn’t want to run in the cold. The first class I took was Fire and while I didn’t even think I would make it through the class, I did end up coming back and my practice very quickly turned into a daily routine. From a physical standpoint, yoga has given me a combination of strength, balance and flexibility, additionally it has made a positive impact on my mental and emotional health as well. I completed my 200 hour Dragonfly Teacher Training in the Spring of 2018.

Favorite Pose

It’s too hard to choose just one and it changes as my practice evolves. Right now I love dancer and half moon pose, any arm balances are always fun too!

Why I Love Dragonfly

I felt so welcomed from the first time I set foot inside the studio, from the staff to the instructors to the students, I immediately was at ease and felt a sense of belonging. Dragonfly truly has a unique community feel where there is no judgment and there is always a good vibe running throughout the studio. It’s my home away from home!
