My Teaching Style
I like to teach from a “strength” perspective in which everyone finds their strength... mentally or physically. Some of the classes can be very challenging but I believe there’s a place for everyone, and I do my best to help them find it. I love to coach!!
I have been an athlete all my life. I’ve been running since high school and have completed marathons and half-marathons as well as several 5Ks and 10Ks. I have also participated in several mountain bike races as well as sprint triathlons. I was even a Pom Pom captain in High School and was in ballet!!! I taught step aerobics when it was cool to wear scrunchie socks and thong leotards... omg.
I do weight training 4/week focusing on Olympic Lifting. Competing in Power Lifting and Olympic Lifting and holding two state records in weightlifting via Wisconsin Weightlifting. I love to run the Madison trails, and I’ve been a member of Dragonfly since it opened.
Any type of shoulder opener is my fave right now. But I also do really like arm balances and tricks that I can break out at a party! Lol
“See the good.”
Why I Love Dragonfly
Initially I was intimated by yoga – I really thought I had to be a vegan bike rider who saved animals, but the DFly community welcomed me and all my ways and lifestyle. It is really a safe place to be you and a place of acceptance. Couldn’t ask for more. Plus the variety of workouts are amazing! (P.S. I do want to save animals... lol).
Little Known Fact about me
