My favorite pose... Half-Moon.

Other ways I move my body... I love to take Evie for walks, and I love to walk the dogs.

In one word yoga is... healing. 

Best thing about yoga... it's a practice, we are always beginning again with each new breath.

The best time in my day is... any time that I am living and breathing

Words that lift my heart... my family, peace, sunshine, Kindness, good health.

My favorite hot beverage is... espresso.

My guilty pleasures are... wine and bread.

If I were on an island stranded I would need... my sunblock and Lipgloss, and sunglasses.

I believe in CLE because... I love it and I have been here my whole life…never given up.

Certified & Registered Yoga Teacher

I discovered yoga for the first time with my teacher and mentor Tammy Lyons at Inner Bliss Yoga. From that first moment, I was hooked!

I earned my 200-hour certification through the OM Teacher Training Program. I try to take the energy of the group and move towards a higher level, melting limits and bringing awareness to all parts of the body and mind. My classes are fun yet challenging, but taught from a base of gratitude and commitment to taking care of your body so that students can shine in their space on the mat. Yoga is the "ultimate in living" and I hope to bring all the joy, peace, and union of mind, body and spirit yoga has given to me back into the world starting with the classes I teach at Inner Bliss. On the mat, I have learned that as in life, each person has areas where they struggle and those where they shine... and that the collaboration of all of our gifts is what makes our world so amazing.

I am inspired by my teachers here in Cleveland and beyond; and the loving support and wisdom of friends; family; my very sweet dogs; and my husband, John.
