"I attended my first yoga class in 2004 with my Mom. At first I was drawn to yoga because I was looking for an alternative to dreaded gym visits. I have always enjoyed athletics and making time for exercise, but when it started to feel like a chore I wanted a change.
Quickly I found yoga to be more than just a physical workout -- and I was hooked. In 2008 I landed at my “yoga home”, Yoga One, after moving to Charlotte. I’ve continued to grow my personal dedication to the practice since then, and decided to begin my professional training path with Yoga One in December 2013. I left my corporate job to become a fulltime mommy and professional yoga instructor.
Over the last 4 years I have given birth to two beautiful girls, completed Assistant Training, Advanced Art of Assisting, and my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certification. In February 2016 I completed Level 1 training with Baron Baptiste in Sedona, Arizona, and I remain on the path to achieving my Baptiste Teaching Certification.
In addition to power flow vinyasa classes, I regularly teach and participate in Prenatal and Mommy and Mini classes at Yoga One and Baby & Co, and lead Prenatal workshops.
Off my mat, Penelope (almost 3) and Mila (born 6/2/17) create a fun, fast-paced and entertaining joy-filled life for my best friend/lifelong teammate/husband, Mike, and me.
When I’m not with family you can find me grinding away in a MADabolic class, cycling at Flywheel, working as professional assistant to a local Ad Exec and Radio Personality, sharing coffee or champs and conversation with a friends, listening to loud beats in my car or at a live music venue, or dabbling in anything cooking or craft related."
