My goal as a teacher is to guide individuals back to their bodies; inviting all ages and fitness levels into my classroom and consistently encouraging students to connect with themselves, at their own internal center. It is my belief that at our core, in the center of our bodies, we find the most strength, the truest sense of purpose, courage, and resilience. Hard work, effort, determination, mindful training, and patience is how we get there. Students leave my classroom feeling encouraged, positive, and connected to their own strength both physically and mentally. Encouraging students to explore, acknowledge, and honor themselves by focusing on mindful movement, I bring compassion, energy, experience, challenge, creativity and humor to my classroom.
Outside of my Barre and Yoga studios you can find me hanging out with my Toy Poodle ‘Zed’, dancing to live music, working on projects within communities that support teens in their environment — keeping teens healthy, safe, and drug free, playing a game of pickup basketball, watching football, making lasagna, exploring Mackworth Island, or finding a reason to throw a party for someone.
