Traditional ~ Original

Back in 2005, in a small, long-established studio in Buffalo, New York, I took my very first yoga class. Thanks to this first teacher, I knew immediately that yoga was more than an exercise practice. After moving back to Massachusetts, I sought out a yoga studio near me where I could continue to experience the tradition of yoga, a practice rooted in lessening suffering and inviting peace. Finding the continuation of that first studio and that first teacher in West Boylston, I craved being led in the practice more and more through all the changes and challenges life has to offer. The more often I practiced, the more I experienced the holistic benefits to my health and well-being. This personal experience strongly influences my teaching. It was here in the state where I was born and raised, that I felt the inspiration to become a teacher myself, and followed the urging to go west again, this time to the Kripalu Center of Yoga and Health. Since graduating from there in 2019, I have been leading studio classes and virtual classes in Hatha yoga teaching trauma-informed yoga classes for veterans, as well as local outreach classes to young adult populations in both high school and college. For me, yoga is ‘every day,’ and I am actively a student of the practice with a passion for learning as much as I can in the hope that I am able to help restore a sense of beauty and balance to a student’s life as it is right now. “yy yoga” was born out of my journey into wonder with this beautiful practice as my companion. With an open heart, I look forward to our time together and welcome you to yoga. I am honored to be your teacher.
