Highlights

Ever since discovering yoga in the early 90s I knew it would be my passion. I have been teaching yoga for over 20 years now and I love helping people learn to connect their minds and bodies through their breath. I am also certified in Pilates and as a personal trainer and meditation teacher. Fitness and mindfulness are what I incorporate into every day of my life and as a mom of three young boys. I hope to share my expertise with as many people as I can and I'm honored to be a part of the Verywell team.
