About Me

I use yoga and fitness to help people discover their strength and happiness.

I believe in the courage to know ourselves and to use our strength in creating the life we desire. I found yoga 20 years ago in my hometown of Ithaca, New York and continued to practice throughout high school and college, falling more deeply in love with the connection it gave me to my true self. For several years I lived abroad, floating from Italy to Spain, New York City, Mexico, and back to Italy, incorporating yoga into my travels and life rhythms enjoying the evolution of my practice. In Italy I began teaching yoga to university theatre students, and continued teaching when I moved to Austin, Texas in 2010. Yoga has been my truest teacher and guide. My classes guide you through challenging poses, encouraging you to find your own boundary and listen to your own voice. As an instructor I hope to help you cultivate love, courage, and true strength both on and off your mat.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. - Edgar Allen Poe

The deepest transition that death brings about is a death to the past. The past is all we ever need to die to.

To all the brave, powerful and kindhearted women I am lucky to call my friends: do not ever underestimate the effect you have on me and on those you love. Many times you make my day with a text, a tag, a hug, your smiling heart in class. You are hugely appreciated and I could not do any of this without your love and light. Make sure the women in your life know how much you cherish them. We all need each other. Today in particular, I send my gratitude to four fearless wonderwomen @yoga.marcella @leahnicolemcmahon @sarahtstovall and @heyyjessaylou - I cannot wait to see all of you at @practiceyogaaustin soon!๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ Love&Light&Sisterhood ๐Ÿ’—โœจ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

Winter has begun to die, and Surya showed his luminous face today ๐ŸŒค reminding me of the exquisite power of balance. The midday sun blinds, but the setting sun soothes. Unchecked power overwhelms, but humble determination inspires. When we walk the center line, we illuminate without overpowering. Allowing the ones we love to both see our light and shine theirs.
