Like so many people,  in the past i've found myself living on automatic pilot, distracted and unsatisfied with my quality of life. Two things completely changed that for me: yoga and meditation. Although I had been practicing yoga for 17 years in 2013, it wasn't until I resigned from a job that had been holding me back on many levels, completed the yoga teacher training I was taking at the time, began meditating daily and teaching yoga that I realized the life-changing potency of these practices.

Since moving to Vashon I’ve become more and more certain of the benefits of Restorative yoga in our stressful lives and completed a Restorative yoga teacher training with Judith Hanson Lasater in August 2019.

I teach private yoga and small-group sessions with an emphasis on Restorative, and yoga sessions for wedding parties at my beautiful home studio in the woods on Vashon Island.  I'm also a wedding officiant and believe it's so important for anyone getting married to feel grounded and present for their big day! We all need to give ourselves the space to restore, relax and to come home to ourselves - and to live the life of purpose and fulfillment we are here on this planet to live. It would be an honor to assist you in that journey.
