Let the beauty that you love be what you do. -Rumi

A devotee of the Divine, an eternal student and teacher of the Holy Science of Yoga, gracious householder, modern mom, raw foodie, hot tea drinker, closet fashionista, urban priestess, seeker of ancient wisdom for the modern woman, and hard to find when the moon is new…

Born and raised in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, I have been in the Raleigh-Durham/Triangle area for the over 30 years. With a B.A. in business marketing from University of North Carolina at Greensboro, my professional background consists of a decade in the computer industry and just as many years in the fashion world. My yogic journey began as a physical practice after leaving the ballet scene, leading to her first teacher training just a few years later. The first payment I ever received for teaching a yoga class was an Asian pear picked fresh from a student’s fruit tree, and I’ve been teaching ever since.

Founder, owner and Senior Teacher of Yoga Garden Apex, co-founder and director of teacher training at Yoga Garden PBO, owner of Yoga Warriors International, and being a Yoga Alliance Advanced Registered Yoga Teacher, I am both an instructor of the Classical Hatha-Raja style as well as tantric Kundalini Yoga. I encourage organic movement and an open heart as I routinely lead students through nurturing practices of pranayama/breathwork, asana/physical postures, and dhyana/meditation. My studies originated with my beloved teachers Chadra Om and HarDarshan Kaur Khalsa, and am immersed in continual studies and practices in divine feminine earth wisdom and eclectic spirituality.

When you learn to live in the present, you are no longer influenced by your past and future. Pain and loss remain only as a memory and no longer define who you are. When you honor the wisdom of the earth and live in harmony with her through the changing of the seasons, and when you can tap into infinity you are able to heal yourself and shatter the illusion of death, disease and old age. Healing takes place on a physical and emotional level at a rapid pace through a healthy and unrestrained immune system. You begin to notice the miracles of every day life.

It is my mission to pass on what I have experienced and discovered in my own practices, and present it in a way to you that brings you joy, peace, child-like wonderment, and good health. Even with a little lightheartedness that I didn’t know was even possible. But it is! Through deep inward exploration you will find your own insights and awakenings, practices and schedules, and creative bursts that will feed your soul… that ever-present and über powerful bliss within.

Whether it’s wanting to delve into an advanced yoga practice or teaching method, live your creative life with more authenticity and zeal, chat entrepreneurship, create a dedicated meditation practice, or simply to reduce stress, I will help you tap into that sacred spark within by showing you how to infuse spiritual tools and divine grace and guidance into your everyday life.

Practice becomes firmly grounded when attended to for a long period of time, without interruption, and with complete devotion. -Yoga Sutra 1:14

Amen * Awen * Aho * Blessed Be
