I love teaching yoga because...Once you are on the path it becomes a journey, there is no end, there is only awareness and inquiry. The subtle becomes the teacher. The skill of listening becomes the lesson. You become yourself.
My classes are…Therapeutics and Vinyasa. I also teach privately, corporations, small groups as well as facilitate teacher training and continuing education workshops.
My training background is…Two decades of personal practice and teaching. Grateful for many trainings with some of the best teachers in the world. Ayurveda inspired, 500 E-RYT, YACEP
My favorite asana is…All of them depending on the day, the season, and me. Postures are like medicine. Three of my favorites Downward Facing Dog, Revolved Triangle and the Splits. !
My personal mantra is…Nature teaches us everything we need to know.

I began teaching yoga in 2011 immediately after completing my teacher training through OM yoga. I'm grateful to Sandy Gross and Evolution Yoga for the opportunity to teach numerous workshops, work with teacher trainees and new teachers, and teach lots of classes in many different styles. I especially love incorporating precise alignment instruction and personalized use of props into flowing vinyasa classes. I believe it's all yoga and am always inspired to learn more on my journey as a student and teacher.

About a year into consistently practicing yoga, a friend brought me to Oasis. I loved the atmosphere, teachers, and slower, mindful style. I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of, so i took a leap and signed up for my 200hr teacher training here in 2016. As a RYT200, I now teach vinyasa and TRX classes, where I focus on alignment, moving with breath, and offering my students a challenge. The more I teach, the more I am able to learn about myself, others, and the practice of yoga. I am grateful for my experiences at this studio so far, and know it's just the beginning!

Yoga has been an incredible gateway to discovering and honoring my true self. This year I received my RTY200 from Oasis Yoga + Fitness and I’m grateful for Mike Strano’s guidance and friendship. I’m also a Reiki Level II practitioner and a TRX registered instructor. Oasis is my home studio as a student and teacher, and I absolutely adore this amazing community.
My classes are lunar based with Gentle Yoga and Yin. I believe everything needs balance, including your practice. Aligning with elemental rhythms, I like to weave meditation, sound therapy, and yoga nidra into my classes to provide a soothing and nurturing aspect of yoga.
My motivation for teaching is to help cultivate inner peace and happiness. You are your greatest resource for solace, strength, and serenity. So many answers lie within, all you have to do is listen.
My personal mantra is “Earth below, sky above, peace within.” By connecting with nature, it reminds us that the stronger our roots, the higher we can grow, and when you have that beautiful connection then a true sense of peace is illuminated.
