Hi everyone! I am a 500 E-RYT, Doctor of Physical Therapy (Pelvic Health/Orthopedics), and YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider), and have been teaching yoga for over 11 years. I currently live in Columbia, MO with my husband, our newborn, and our cat Gus. I'm a former Central IL yoga studio owner and return frequently to lead workshops and teacher trainings. I also teach online and at retreats and workshops across the country. I completed my 500 hour yoga training with Yoga Medicine/Tiffany Cruikshank and Kansas City YTT/Brian Landers and my Physical Therapy Doctorate at The University of Missouri.
Needless to say, I LOVE anatomy and alignment and am committed to creating a safe and accessible atmosphere for my students. But, I also love yoga for the mental health benefits. When I started practicing yoga, I was depressed and felt I had little control in my life. Yoga has walked me through many periods of depression, anxiety, and grief and has gifted me the tools to be present and the courage to live authentically. Dedication to a yoga practice helped me get to know myself and find my power and strength. Join me online or in person and let me show you your power through yoga! All levels (yes-including beginners) are welcome!
