My relationship with yoga began with my first class in 2000, and like every good relationship, it has grown stronger and more committed with time.

I completed teacher training in Orlando, Florida in 2004, and have been teaching ever since. My own practice and teaching have continued to evolve and deepen, in large part due to the amazing community of practitioners and teachers in Portland, where I moved in 2005. I’m grateful to be part of such a rich yoga community!

A few years ago, I decided to leave full-time work as a librarian so that I could spend more time teaching and learning. I am continually challenged, humbled, and inspired by these practices, and in turn love sharing yoga and awareness practices with others.

I’m most interested in how the practices of yoga allow us to be more fully human and embodied, more connected to self, more at ease in our life.  My classes follow my own study and practice, which is always evolving — but I endeavor to provide a clear, steady and sweet combination of feeling, breath, alignment and awareness.
