I earned my BA from Indiana University of Pennsylvania where I studied Anthropology, Religious Studies, Pan African Studies and Dance (just to show how much I love to learn 😊). It is there that I found a yoga practice and became interested in treating the body from a wholistic perspective. Since then I have discovered Functional Medicine and Holistic Nutrition. It was my interest in these coupled with my love of yoga that led me to complete my 200rytt at Moonglow Yoga under Cassandra Pfaff.
Even as a teacher now, I feel my main job is that of a student; always open and hungry to learn more. I love to learn about the various styles of yoga and feel that there is a form of yoga to go with whatever you may need for the day from a fast paced energetic vinyasa flow to a calming and restorative yin practice and everything in between. I enjoy bringing yoga into the lives of people who have never experienced it before and sharing the many health benefits it can give them.
I am always seeking to expand my experience by continuing my training, therefore adding more tools to my own practice and thereby growing as a teacher. Since earning my 200 hours I have completed a Kids Yoga Certificate program, a Yin and Restorative Certificate and have completed a Ashtanga workshop series to complement my home practice.
When I am not practicing yoga I am busy with my husband and our 2 and 5 year old, volunteering at our CSA farm, cooking Whole Foods from scratch and enjoying time in nature with our 2 dogs. Just as I practice the yin and yang of yoga I believe life is all about balance 😊🙏🏻
