I teach from my love of practice and the sincere desire to offer to others what has transformed my own life.
As a teacher I aim to provide a safe environment for personal exploration, bodymind integration, and the depth of awareness and insight that the practices can evoke.
I have practiced and taught Yoga for over a decade now and it continues to reveal to me how there is so much to learn, to remember, and to renounce. In 2010, I took a year away from University, traveling some, and returned to receive my 200-hr teaching certification from Kripalu School of Yoga in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. Afterwards I began to teach weekly classes and offer workshops in the northeast. Since then I have taught at various studios and offered Yoga in schools to both students and staff members. In 2019&2020, I completed a three month Yoga Development Course followed by the Hatha Teacher Certification at Yasodhara Ashram in British Columbia. I am forever grateful for being invited to open up what Yoga means to me and in doing so, transforming the way I practice, and teach.
As an herbalist, forever a student of the plants and wild places, I graduated from Vermont Center of Integrative Herbalism in 2018. Prior to attending their clinical program I joyfully participated in various apprenticeships. My journey began with a three month immersion at Herb Pharm in 2009. Since then I have the great opportunity to study with Brittany Wood Nickerson of Thyme Herbal, William Siff of Goldthread, and other notable teachers that have generously passed along their insight and wisdom. My approach in working with others is rooted in connecting people to themselves, their green community, and drawing forward the intelligence of both. I feel honored to work with folx experiencing anxiety, mood swings, depression and loss, the effects of trauma, as the plants themselves have helped me in finding my own stability through such.
