I believe yoga is a practice that can benefit all shapes, sizes, and ages. Using yoga as a method to enhance the connection between the mind, body, and spirit, I believe people can become healthier, happier, and live more fulfilling lives. I have been teaching yoga for 11 years, and am certified at the 200 hour level through the Yoga Alliance. The teachers who have most influenced my yoga practice and teaching include Heidi Hamric, Nikki Hoyer, Bryan Kest, and Nischala Joy Devi. As part of my ongoing learning process, I have taken classes and workshops with Duncan Wong, Shiva Rea, David Swenson, Baron Baptiste, Ana Forrest, Matthew Sanford, and Bryan Kest. In May 2009 I completed the Radiant Child Teacher Training program with Shakta Kaur Khalsa. My goal in the classes I teach is to present a welcoming and positive space to explore the mind body connection. I live in Charleston with my three sons, Henry (13), William (7), and John (5).
