I had been practicing yoga occasionally as a part of my regular workouts when I decided to take my first class at Hot Asana Southern Pines in December 2011. This is where I “got” yoga and fell completely in love with the practice. I began practicing all styles offered at Hot Asana and in 2013 became a RYT 200 after training with the brilliant Grace Morales. I am currently working to earn my 300h certification through Asheville Yoga Center and am on track to complete this training in 2021. My training focus has been yoga and psychology, trauma informed yoga , and yoga for managing pain. I have also trained with Hot Asana in Yin Yoga, Amy Weintraub in Life-force yoga for anxiety and depression and am also a reiki master. I am a therapist in Southern Pines,NC and my passion is integrating yoga asana, spirituality, and philosophy for emotional well-being. My goal is to provide a class where students can take a much-needed break from everyday stress to relax and re-set. Restorative yoga and yin yoga are my specialties!
