My yoga journey began in the late 90's while pregnant with my first child. When my late husband passed away in 2007, I found myself juggling a corporate career while raising my three boys on my own. Life as a 32 year old widow was challenging and I struggled with anxiety and depression because I didn't yet have the tools I needed to find a peaceful equilibrium. In 2012, my life changed as I discovered how incredibly effective meditation, yoga and eastern philosophy studies were in shifting my perspective of the world. As my healing process unfolded, I became increasingly compelled to dedicate my life to helping others. I made the leap and left my corporate career to dedicate my life to helping others in 2015. I founded Prana Yoga and Meditation and Prana Prenatal Yoga creating a thriving yoga, meditation and birth community.
I love yoga & meditation and eastern philosophy because…
It offers a complete system for mental and physical well-being. These practices makes no promises that you cannot experiment with and test for yourself. When your practice becomes consistent the changes you have made in your body and your mind are clear. You feel good. You’re happier. You achieve a flexibility in attitude as well as the physical body.
Working with people and improving their lives is the nucleus of my life's purpose both on and off the mat.My greatest joy is creating safe spaces for students to explore their connection with mind, body and spirit and supporting their self-care. The results are incredibly powerful and always inspiring.
When I’m not teaching…
I'm writing. My work's been published in major yoga publications and I love being able to combine my two passions. You'll also find me hiking the majestic Rocky Mountains, creating meals in the kitchen, avidly reading or hanging out with my family, our dogs, and our extensive network of cherished friends.
