Seven years of teaching experience, bringing adaptable classes to St. Louis and abroad.

Methodology

I have a calm and centered teaching approach. I am adaptable and form unique one-on-one private yoga sessions for my clients, focusing on their needs as well as past/present injuries and trauma.

I hope to provide a welcoming space for all to experience the benefits of yoga.

Background

I completed my first 200 hour yoga training in 2013 in St. Louis, Missouri.

At 19 I went to live in a Sivananda Ashram in the Bahamas, living with and studying from my teachers from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. everyday. I became well versed in karma yoga, Bhakti yoga, Sanskrit and chanting, and scripture.

By age 20 I began studying with world renowned instructor Tiffany Cruikshank in Yoga Medicine. I have traveled to Massachusetts, Spain, Arizona, Colorado, and Kansas City to learn from her. I have taken training modules on: yoga for pro athletes, Chinese medicine, function and possible dysfunction of the hip joint, and general anatomy workshops.

I have been hired by many studios as the main yin yoga teacher. I enjoy fusing my wide array of knowledge in yoga asana, anatomy, meditation, and Chinese medicine together when instructing.

I also have a dual degree in economics and management.
