I felt drawn to Baptiste yoga right after taking my first class. Between the powerful asana practice, the heat, and the total mental focus, I fell in love with the practice. Every time I step onto my mat is a new opportunity to get curious, get playful, and get messy— by doing this, I can push myself to my edge and create even more room for self discovery.
I wanted to share this powerful practice with others, so I completed my 200 hour training at True North Yoga of Avon in May of 2016. I have been teaching ever since, with a great sense of humor. Yoga has taught me that you have to be able to laugh at yourself, so I do my best to create a space where my students can get messy, get serious, and smile all at the same time.
I studied Horticulture at the University of Connecticut and am constantly thinking of ways I can contribute to a more sustainable agricultural system. When I’m not on my mat, I am probably hiking, gardening, cooking, or playing with my dog, Bear.
