I would be honored to be your teacher, guiding you throughout this wonderful process and being with you every step of the way.

I created a comprehensive curriculum which is fun, informative, easy-to-navigate, and designed to meet the needs of everyone. Yoga is for Everyone, regardless of age, shape, size, or physical ability.

Yoga is so much more than a pose. You will learn and be able to share and teach Yoga Classes, Relaxation and Breathing Techniques, Restorative Yoga, Chair Yoga, Mindfulness, Meditation, and so much more.

Give yourself the gift of Yoga, Knowledge and Wisdom  – This is more than a course, it is a wonderful experience. All are Welcome!
