Hi there, I’m glad you’re here.
A bit about myself – I’m a yoga teacher whose passion for movement is grounded in strengthening the mind/body connection. As a former professional volleyball athlete, my yoga practice began as a physical practice, which turned into a lifestyle that provided balance and healing after a torn ACL injury. Since discovering the transformative power of yoga, I decided I could share it with others, and set off on a journey to become a certified yoga teacher. My classes are mostly dynamic vinyasa flows which help cultivate body awareness and mindful breathing. See you on the mat.
Yoga has been a part of my life for many years. I began my formal teacher training in 2018 with Rachel Hanberry and haven’t looked back since. Rachel has a diverse understanding of yoga and its philosophy. She has taught me so much about movement and breath, for which I am grateful.
I teach hatha yoga (which means ‘force’ in Sanskrit). I encourage students to link their breath to fluid movements. This cue empowers them to find their strength from inside. It’s incredible what we can achieve when focusing on one thing at a time. Expect warmth, humility and openness when meeting me in the studio, or in a zoom class 🙂
My yoga style
athleticflow™ is a concept which integrates high intensity interval training (HIIT) and yoga, to make you a fitter and more complete athlete. It integrates slow and controlled movements to strengthen your balance and increase flexibility, while focusing on high intense cardiovascular training elements to shape your body.
This style of workout combines the best of both worlds giving you a boost of power, strength and quickness but also calmness and control. Each athleticflow™ exercise is structured with varying levels, allowing each participant to choose their own pace.
I received my teacher training certification with Simon and Nora Kersten, the founders of athleticflow™ in early 2020 and personally love training in this holistic way.
Pregnancy is a magnificent time in a woman’s life, but can also be confusing – trying to figure out what we can do and what we should avoid. Mama knows best, and I am here to help expecting mothers understand that her body is different, without creating fear around the changes she sees and feels within herself.
I completed my prenatal yoga training to study the physiology of pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. I learned more than just how to modify asanas to give space for the baby, but also how to create a nurturing and empowering environment where expectant mothers can tune into their inner voice and wisdom.
I would be so happy to support you physically and mentally during this special phase of life!
Feel free to get in touch during any stage of pregnancy, regardless of your level of yoga experience.
