I’m a thirty-something gal with a passion for saving money and saving the planet. By day, I’m the Webmaster of a natural beauty company. By night, you’ll find me teaching iRest® Yoga Nidra, taking yoga classes, singing (poorly) to Broadway musicals, or playing board games with my friends._

I have been practicing yoga since 2007. I was introduced to it through a class at my workplace, which initially I saw as an opportunity to get to know co-workers. Over the next few years, the social aspects of yoga became secondary to the positive benefits I began to experience for myself. I took yoga classes regularly as a student for several years, favoring classes with deep stretching and relaxing poses. I found the most enjoyment in the balance poses such as Tree, King Dancer, and Warrior III. In 2009, I suffered a heart attack. After a challenging year, I was able to ground myself in my yoga practice again and was able to use the relaxation and breathing techniques to help overcome the stress and life-changing effects of that difficult time. This experience was my inspiration to find a form of yoga that would best allow me to share coping techniques with others, which led her to Yoga Nidra.

My intention is to Heal Myself and Others Through Yoga.
