"Dance had opened my body, Yoga opened my mind and heart, uniting Mind, Body, and Spirit."

My physical practice began early in life with the practice of ballet, tap, jazz, and tumbling through Jody's School of Performing Arts. I danced from the age of 4 until I was 16 giving me a solid base of body alignment and physical discipline. My passion for using my body in movement was rekindled at the age of 27 when I attended my first Yoga class. Dance had opened my body, Yoga opened my mind and heart, uniting Mind, Body, and Spirit. My life's ambition was transformed and is the center of my focus for promoting the union of Mind, Body, and Spirit.

My Teacher Training began through "Yoga Rising" studio in Hendersonville, TN. I completed the 200hr program in December of 2006. And in October of 2012 I completed a 300hr Yoga Therapy program, through “Yoga School of Excellence” in Jackson, TN. I now hold an E-RYT 500 registration through Yoga Alliance. I am also a 2nd degree Reiki practitioner.

Current teaching emphasis is in Vinyasa Flow and Yoga Therapy. I infuse the practice with music, laughter and a bit of seriousness! "Go beyond the beyond."
