A Little About Me

I was drawn to yoga a few times in my early 20's mostly for the sweat but eventually I found the right teachers and it really stuck, I couldn't get enough. I believe it happens to most future teachers (and most practitioners), especially in the beginning; eat, sleep, breathe, YOGA. Nothing had ever made me feel so connected, mentally and physically. So it was pretty obvious I wanted to share this life changing practice with the world through teaching. 

Here I am, years later, teaching and loving every single second of it. Nothing has ever made me feel more alive in my entire life. It brings me so much joy to help people connect with their bodies, really being able to LISTEN to the messages our bodies give us constantly. It brings me just as much joy to help people in connecting on a even deeper level, spiritually, connecting with the Higher Self or with the Authentic Self through yoga and meditation.


My hope is to spread love and awareness, to teach my students to live from the heart, to always choose love. I believe the more we connect deep within,  the more we find love for ourselves and when we love ourselves, the better lovers we become to others and to this beautiful planet we call home.  

In my everyday life I am a loving wife, dog mom, dedicated yogi, yoga teacher, beach bum, flower child, herb nerd, music lover and health foodie. As well as my RYT I am also a Reiki I & II practitioner. You can catch a class with me at Zen Den Yoga, in York, Maine  and Portsmouth, NH.
