Director, E-RYT 500

I found yoga in 2009, when I was looking to become a little more flexible. As a lifelong athlete, I was strong but lacked flexibility. I didn’t immediately feel connected to the yoga classes I was taking and continued to practice sporadically until Autumn 2011. It was in that first hot vinyasa class that my passion for this practice was ignited. By December 2012, I had opened up a hot yoga studio in Palm Beach Gardens and received my first certification though Danielle Vardakas at Honest Yoga. Over the next few years, I went on to earn my advanced 500-hour certification. I’m now humbled to be a trainer for Karen Burnett’s yoga school, Yoga Palm University, training numerous teacher trainees over the last several years at Thrive.

In my classes, my intention is to simply be a vessel for the yoga to flow through to you in the way that you need- through physical practice, meditation, breath work and philosophy that applies to modern life. In my studio classes you can expect a sweaty, creative vinyasa flow woven with humor and heartfelt support. In private lessons, you can expect an experience tailored to your individual needs and intentions.

Beyond teaching you can find me at the studio most days, sometimes with my little twin yogis in tow. I look forward to practicing with you soon.
