Hi! I'm so glad you came to learn more about me and the yoga I share.
I have recently relocated to Bend, Oregon with my husband and our two kind, bright and strong, daughters. We have two Cattle Dog mixes - Clarke and Sebastian. (Watch for either one to make appearances at Doga.) My family's happy place has been beautiful South Padre Island, Texas. With our move, we'll have to find a new happy place a little closer to home.
I love to work with my hands - cooking, gardening and sewing, mostly.
I am a native to the Pacific Northwest. I attended Pacific Lutheran University to obtain my 2 bachelor's degrees, as well as pursued Master's studies in Business Administration.
I lived in the Southern United States 2012-June of 2023, where we called Georgia, Tennessee and Texas, home.
I fell in love with Power Yoga the first time I practiced in 2012. As a former Martial Artist, I loved the rigor. I loved the sweatiness. I loved then and still do now, that my mind, body and spirit are challenged when I get onto my mat.
This is my hope for all practitioners I have the privilege of teaching; that you see yourself and your life differently when you put in and keep present, the practices of yoga.
My core values center around creativity, growth and love. Every opportunity you take to practice with me will support you to be moved by curiosity, growth and love both on your mat and in your life.
I teach Power Vinyasa, Buti Yoga, Restorative Asana, Yin Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Kids Yoga and Doga.
