I’m a Physical Therapist and Yoga Instructor. I graduated Ithaca College with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2007. In 2008 I moved from Upstate New York to Colorado. I received my Yoga Teacher certificate in 2008 from CorePower Yoga in Boulder, CO. While in Colorado I had the opportunity to work and teach in Estes Park, Lyons, Boulder, Telluride, Colorado Springs and Longmont, CO. In 2013 I opened, along with a friend, a small private practice where I offered Physical Therapy, Yoga and Thai Massage. In 2014, I took a job on the Navajo Nation as a Physical Therapist and have continued to teach weekly free yoga classes to the local community as well as led and assisted a variety of workshops in Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico. As a Yoga Instructor, I enjoy focusing on foundational strength and alignment while cultivating a healthy mindset with regard to ability, fear, patience and beginner’s mind. I teach vinyasa flow as well as inversions and beginner’s Acro Yoga. I believe that Yoga is not a tool, but a toolbox and that everyone can benefit in some way from yoga practice. I believe strongly in having fun, being brave and vulnerable and practicing yoga on and off the mat.
Classes I’ll be offering at Montrose Yoga Festivals are Beginner’s Acro Yoga and Inversions & Arm Balances
Beginner’s Acro Yoga: Acro Yoga is a partner or community based practice. While you may bring a partner, it is not required. Comfort or willingness to work in a group will be required. Come learn to trust and support one another and play! No experience required.
Inversions & Arm Balances: Learning to balance on your hands is an incredibly rewarding and challenging practice. Whether you are still working on crow or can hold a free standing hand-stand, I have lots of tips to help everyone grow their practice. This workshop will involve partner and group work. Some experience is helpful, but not required.
