For me, yoga is a way to connect to myself and to others. The practice changes day to day but there’s a knowing that it’s always right there, to lift us up, or ground us down. My teaching philosophy is simple: I teach from my own practice. I share what I’m learning and working on in hopes of delivering the same feelings that yoga brings to my life — calm, purpose, confidence, joy — to others.
I recently moved from Vinalhaven, Maine, to South Portland with my husband and seven year- old twins -- I am thrilled to be joining the Align community. I have been teaching yoga since 2009, and have a studio on Vinalhaven where I continue to teach.
I received my YTT through Frog Lotus Yoga. I draw inspiration and influence from many amazing teachers and people in my life but would like to acknowledge, in particular, one of the first teachers who opened up my eyes and my heart to yoga: Claire Este-McDonald.
I look forward to sharing space and practice with you!
