I grew up in Vancouver, BC Canada and have spent most of my adult life adventuring around the world while experiencing different yoga styles and teachers. I recently moved to the Boston area from Germany with my husband and 2 young sons. 2009 marked the beginning of my teaching journey and I completed my 200 hour Vinyasa Flow teacher training through Frog Lotus International under the guidance of Vidya Heisel and Jennifer Yarro. In April 2016, I completed the Om Births Prenatal Yoga teacher training with Bec Conant and dove into the world of perinatal yoga. This training reignited my passion for teaching yoga and my desire to share the physical and emotional benefits of practicing yoga during and after pregnancy, as well as for conception. This led to the creation of Fertile Body Yoga, which offers yoga classes and community for women facing fertility challenges. After completing the Fertility Yoga Teacher Training with Sue Dumais in November 2016, I have now been supporting women on their journeys to becoming mothers for a few years and have seen the profound difference this practice can make. September 2017 marked the completion of my Advanced Prenatal and Postnatal Teacher Training and I am now a 85 hr RPYT. In June 2018 I was blessed to study Restorative Yoga with Judith Hanson-Lasater and am a Certified Relax and Renew® Trainer.
Reiki has become a nurturing addition to my offerings for classes and private sessions. This calming, healing, and meditative Japanese practice is non-invasive and works on the energetic plane. I am studying under Lourdes Gray of the John Harvey-Gray lineage of the Usui Shiki Ryoho and have completed the Reiki Second Degree training.
