Hello Yogi Friends!
I am a student, teacher, hug-giver, and life-lover. I am currently enrolled as an undergraduate student at the University of Alabama. I will be graduating with a BS in Psychology this May, so I am excitedly planning where my next adventure will take me after finishing my degree. Although I don’t know exactly what the near future holds for me, I am hoping that yoga, travel, and adventure will play a large role in my life after graduation!
I discovered yoga in high school after retiring from a decade-long career as a competitive gymnast. I stepped into my first yoga class purely for the physical benefits of strength, flexibility, and balance. But yoga has given me so much more than that. My practice has given me the gift of peace, presence, and joy. My mat is a safe place where I feel free to move, grow, love, and connect.
It is my passion in life to guide others through a fun and playful yoga practice, and to help them use this practice as a tool to discover an authentic state of love and joy. I feel a deep call to leave this world a better place than I found it, and I truly believe that yoga can be used as a powerful tool to make the universe a more joyful, peaceful, harmonious place.
A Little More About Me
Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA
I practice a variety of yoga styles, depending on what my body needs at the time. One of my favorite studios is a hot vinyasa studio, where classes are taught in a sequence of funky flows in a small, dark mirror-less room where I feel completely free to focus on what the poses feel like deep in my body rather than what they look like on the surface.
I also enjoy practicing yin, especially when I am deep in marathon training, as I am right now! In addition to being an avid yogi, I love running, and have found yoga to be the perfect complement to a high-mileage week.
I have been teaching at the Student Recreation Center on my University’s campus for over a year. Here I usually teach a 75-minute vinyasa flow class. I also teach at a community center in Tuscaloosa, where I teach 60-minute hatha classes, often to older adults.
