I am a wife, mom to four, and Gigi to three of the most amazing
little girls on earth. I love music, all genres and decades.
I started my yoga journey with some online classes as a way to
move my body and build strength after back surgery. I found my
way to the beginner series at Vella and it changed everything for
me. The seeker in me wanted to learn everything I could about
So, I signed up for yoga teacher training at Vella even
though initially I didn’t have an interest in teaching. However, as
we neared the end of our training, and the more I learned about
yoga and myself, the more I knew I wanted to share it with the
world. Through this journey, I found new respect and honor for
my body that I never experienced prior to my yoga journey.
What can you expect from one of my classes? My goal is to
create a space where everyone feels welcome, no matter your
yoga experience, and to provide a heart-centered space for all.
You can expect salutations, forward folds, and twists with
opportunities to build strength along with plenty of
encouragement to find freedom in your body. I also breathwork
for mind-body connection and Postures guided with breath.
Can’t wait to see you in class!
