I am a fat Yoga Teacher.
I have been practising yoga for almost 20 years.
From this, I learned a deep appreciation for my body and the many ways it cares for me.
I gained confidence in myself and my abilities, which led me to a place of body love.
These qualities became indispensable at a time when I felt my body had failed me,
after I sustained several injuries from a car accident.
As part of my rehabilitation, I was introduced to Aqua Yoga, a gentle practice that was vital to my recovery.
It has since been my goal to create safe spaces
that are accepting of all bodies, abilities, genders, and identities,
wherein I share my Aqua and Studio Yoga practice in a light-hearted, fun, approachable manner.
I offer body positive, accessible, inclusive, joyful movement
Aqua, Studio, and Outdoor Yoga classes,
taught through a trauma-informed lens.
I enjoy working with folks in larger bodies,
Veterans, Military Members, and their loved ones,
folks who have experienced trauma, including survivors of Military Sexual Trauma,
and/or live with Post-Traumatic Stress/Disorder/Injury.
I am a Certified Aqua Yoga Instructor and Registered Yoga Teacher (CYA-RYT 250 & RYT-200),
a Certified Accessible Yoga Teacher,
and a Veterans Yoga Project, Warriors at Ease Level 1, Yogafit for Warriors®,
and iRest® Yoga Nidra Level 1 Yoga Teacher.
It is my hope that you will join me.
Come explore a different way to yoga.
And know that you, exactly who you are, exactly as you are, are always welcome here.
Wishing you wellness and all good things,
