Dragonfly Yoga Teacher Training – 200 hours

My Teaching Style

I lead with passion and purpose. I want yoga practitioners in a room to experience the mind-body connection, find themselves on the edge and extend their personal limits of possible, have peaceful and relaxing moments to re-charge, feel kindness and gratitude within themselves and others, and wish for coming to yoga classes again and again. My peer yoga teachers-in-training described my teaching as warm, purposeful, creative, well-organized, brave, unique, and educational.


I was exposed to occasional yoga classes but never engaged in a regular, intentional yoga practice until my daughter introduced me to the Dragonfly Hot Yoga in 2017. Since that time, I enjoy the Dragonfly community, the variety of classes, and learning from great instructors and inspiring peers. I completed my Yoga Teacher Training – 200 hours in February 2024. I appreciate an opportunity to grow as a practitioner and a yoga teacher with Dragonfly and am glad to apply my energy and skills to helping others benefit from the wonder of yoga practice.

Favorite Pose

A Deer Pose with a Twist is one of my favorite poses! This pose offers a balanced way to rotate hips and a twist of the upper body. It provides a deep sensation, relaxes, and gently helps to find inner peace.
