My yoga journey...

I started my yoga practice in the late 90's, while living in Singapore and in Bangkok, Thailand. Inspired by the diverse instructors that I encountered in Southeast Asia, I studied to become a Registered Yoga Teacher upon my return to the USA.  As an E-RYT 200 and an E-RYT 500 with the Yoga Alliance and a Certified Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists, my yogic educational journey is ongoing.  I love the fusion of ancient yogic wisdom and modern fitness principles and infuse each of my classes with complimentary practices and essential oils. I strive to create an inclusive, eclectic and inspiring therapeutic yoga experience.


I also have the honor of being a member of the Balance Studio Cohasset 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Team since 2018 and a member of the Alzheimer's Research & Prevention Foundation Education Advisory Committee since 2021.
