My yoga journey began when I started attending yoga classes after exiting a high stress corporate job. I fell in love with how yoga felt in my body and the way it transformed my mind and body awareness. I felt free and focused with my own intuitive abilities. I completed my yoga teacher training in 2009 at Yoga on 6th, a Baptiste Affiliate studio, in Denver, CO. I knew I wanted to share this practice with others.
In those early years, teaching yoga was a platform to share with others what I enjoyed so much. My spiritual beliefs strengthened as I aligned more with my true self through teaching and self-practice. In 2011, I completed massage therapy school at Boulder College of Massage Therapy and I started my massage career. I was Inspired with new knowledge and fascinated at the similarities between yoga and massage. I was on a path of spiritual expansion.
I am excited to return to yoga, and my intentions are to lead you in a way that empowers, inspires, strengthens, heals, & uplifts your mind, body and soul. I look forward to seeing you on your mat!
