A Little About Me
Hello! I am a E-RYT 500 and YACEP yoga teacher and a certified personal trainer. My path to yoga started in 2000 when after 10 years of teaching group fitness, my Columbia YMCA supervisor convinced me to take a weekend teacher training program. That weekend training program sparked my passion to learn more about yoga and share what I had learned with others. Since then, I have had the great fortune to study with many amazing teachers. I completed a teacher certification program with Holy Cow Yoga in 2003 and with Carolina Yoga in 2009. I held an Anusara-Inspired certification from 2007 until April 2012. In 2016, I studied with Jill Miller, and became a certified Yoga Tune Up® teacher learning how to add therapy balls and corrective exercises into my yoga classes. I have also studied yoga as therapy extensively with Doug Keller and yoga for scoliosis with Elise Browning Miller.
I teach an alignment-based yoga practice with an emphasis on taking the body through a full range of motion eliminating pain, strengthening musculature around the joints, and down-regulating the nervous system. My goal as a teacher is to create a fun, safe environment for my students to explore connecting their body and mind.
