Bio

As a B.F.A Dance major at The Boston Conservatory, I began practicing yoga to supplement my dance training and to ungrip my tight hips. The buzz upon rising from savasana hooked me, so I kept coming back to the mat, intrigued by what the practice had to offer. Over time, yoga became a way for me to center myself not only physically but emotionally.

Several dance injuries later, I made the shift to teaching yoga full time. I left the dance performing world behind, but infuse it’s knowledge, detail, and passion into all of my classes.

My intention is to make class a safe haven for brightness in the intellectual, anatomical, visceral, and emotional aspects of the asana and breath practice.

What keeps you practicing?
The endless amount of information, possibility, and discovery of the human body, breath, and mind is what keeps me practicing and curious.
What is the best piece of advice you've ever received?
When I was in school at The Boston Conservatory, I met an 81 yr old clarinet alumnus who encouraged me to "press on regardless." His words remind me to keep fighting for what you love and for what lights your soul on fire, no matter what opposition or challenge you may face.
What are you goals as a teacher?
I aim to make my students aware of the relationships the physical and mental bodies have to one another and to the space around them, the relationship the breath has to the movement and accessibility of these parts, and how the quality of these relationships affects the quality of the entire being. Class is a laboratory for each student to explore a "yoking" of each of these parts through asana and through rest.
Besides yoga what do you do to keep a healthy lifestyle?
I try to eat as much (raw) chocolate as possible, carve out as much time as I can to catch up with dear friends, dance, run, meditate, travel, read, study, and relax!
