Teaching Style:  Great question.. most of the classes I teach are slow vinyasa or yin; all of my classes are focused on slowing down to get in touch with your body and find ways to feel good in it :)


Inspired By:  Honestly, all of the wonderful teachers (yoga, meditation, Reiki, or otherwise) I’ve studied under or practiced with! I try to take little pieces of wisdom everywhere I go.


Favorite Pose: Goddess warrior & half moon! Love that powerful feminine energy 😍


Morning Ritual: …as slow as possible, please! Bask in bed in the morning light for a while, get outside for some gentle stretching with a nice hot drink


1st Yoga Experience: When I was a toddler! My mom would do those old Master’s yoga tapes at home, and I would downward dog alongside her


Favorite Food: Preposterous question - I love food too much to choose! But, I’ll go with ramen (real ramen, not the instant packets!)


Family: My wonderful parents Sherry & Jeff live around the corner from Shift in Laurel. My big sister Alex is also a Shift teacher, and we’ve got one brother in between us named Kevin.


Favorite Destination: Cape Town, South Africa


Why You Love Teaching: I love connecting with my students and showing them new ways to listen to & love on their bodies and ease their stressed minds. Helping people feel good truly feeds my soul!


When you aren’t teaching you are: Outside! Whether I’m working on running my small wellness business, hiking, teaching or practicing yoga, relaxing, eating, snuggling some kind of animal, or making pottery - if I can do it outside, I’m extra happy!
