My Teaching Style

In my classes, I like to connect fitness with inner reflection, which allows my students to advance in both their physical and spiritual practices. I craft yoga classes that build the strength, balance, and flexibility to help my students thrive both on and off their mats. I encourage my students to take chances, test their limits, breathe deeply, smile, and have fun. I work to build a warm, safe, relaxed atmosphere, which allows my students to be vulnerable and engage in introspection. I found yoga at a challenging stage of my life, and my yoga practice has helped me persevere through many more. I feel honored and privileged to share the gift of yoga with others.

Experience

I began practicing yoga 10 years ago at Denison University in Ohio, where the college offered free Ashtanga yoga classes. After college, I joined Teach for America and moved to rural Arkansas to teach high school science. Because the town was so isolated, I drove an hour and a half to the nearest yoga studio once a week, every week, for three years. This experience helped me appreciate my time flowing with other yogis in the studio and deepened my independent yoga practice. After my time in Arkansas, I moved to Austin, Texas, where I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training through CorePower Yoga. I moved to Madison for graduate school, and began teaching yoga independently (in my driveway and at parks!) during the pandemic. I am thrilled to join the Dragonfly yoga family and practice with you all, both in the studio and via livestream!
