Studio Manager - Downtown, Instructor
My Teaching Style
I love to teach a class that invites growth through challenge, persistence and fun! I create a safe environment that encourages exploration and acceptance, all while working hard and getting a little sweaty :)
My yoga journey began in 2011, when I was working a full time, unpaid internship in Madison to complete my Social Work degree. I found myself needing an outlet for the stress and demands of the job and discovered a new studio in Fitchburg called Dragonfly Hot Yoga that had opened 1-month prior! After my very first class, I know that Dragonfly, and Yoga would be in my life for good. Since that time, I have been able to incorporate yoga into my daily life. It has allowed me to become a stronger person, physically and mentally, and genuinely connect with my body in a way I didn’t know was possible.
Half Pigeon: As a volleyball player and runner, my hips store a lot of my tension. Half pigeon allows me to dig deep into that area and challenges me to truly let go and breathe into the stretch.

Why I Love Dragonfly
Since the moment I walked through the doors in 2011, Dragonfly has felt like a home to me. The team of instructors and staff has shown constant support and kindness, and has treated me like a member of their own families! Not only do I get to interact with amazing people when I am at Dragonfly, but I get to be in a space that promotes self-acceptance as a focus. Dragonfly has truly created its own very special place in my heart.
