My Yoga journey began back in 1993 when I moved to Arkansas. I started practicing and studying various Yoga traditions including Power Yoga/Ashtanga, Hatha Yoga and Iyengar to overcome low back pain. Little did I realize that these baby steps would open my heart, reveal the passion
I have for Yoga and guide me to share this passion with everyone that is willing to join me.
Hooked on Yoga I decided I wanted to share the many benefits I was enjoying, so June 2003, I became a Certified Yoga instructor so that I could start sharing my love and passion for Yoga to everyone..
To compliment my Yoga practice, I became Pilates certified November 2006. Pilates and Yoga compliment each other. Pilates focuses mainly on core strength, and with a strong core Yoga poses can be held much longer and stronger. I also hold an indoor cycling certification and there is nothing better than a Yoga class after an intense cycling class to stretch out those muscles.
In 2009, I began another journey – Hot Yoga. In a very short time you will begin to feel the benefits of the heat combined with all the Yoga benefits. It’s truly a blessing and a path that I want to share.
I continue to expand my horizons, knowledge and techniques by attending classes, keeping abreast of trends, taking courses whenever possible. Learning never ends, just like there is no end to a pose. I truly love teaching various Yoga classes including Hot Yoga, Power Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Yoga with weights, and a combined Yoga/Pilates class. I take my Yoga seriously but do enjoy having fun with it and try to design each class according to the students and their needs.
My teaching style is joyful, compassionate and lighthearted. My mission is to encourage and empower everyone to follow their own path through this wonderful journey of life whether it’s through Yoga, Hot Yoga, Pilates or any combination. I am committed to helping my students uncover their own inherent ability to heal and find peace. My hope is that my passion and love for Yoga comes through in all my classes and inspires everyone to join me so I can share the never ending gifts of Yoga.
My Yoga practice has brought me into greater alignment with my mind, body and soul. I am better able to handle the stresses in my life with more patience, better perspective and I’ve become more accepting of where I am at in various areas in my life. I have become more flexible, stronger and more focused than I have ever been. I know this will happen to you.
I believe in giving back to my students, so in the fall of 2008 I put on my first annual It’z OK Yoga Retreat. It’s a weekend event where I offer numerous different classes free of charge. Also, in 2009 I put together the first annual Yoga 4 the Cure, a 1 ½ hour outdoor Yoga Class to raise funds for cancer, honoring those that have lost, won or are fighting this horrible battle.
I am blessed and honored to provide a pathway to a healthier mind, body and spirit, bringing more happiness to this journey we are all on. I invite you to join me on this fantastic journey at this wonderful facility.
I am very passionate about Yoga and I enjoy helping everyone. Together we can do it, one breath at a time, one pose at a time, one stretch at a time, one day at a time.

I began my yoga journey in 2012, starting out slowly, taking a class here and there, watching YouTube videos, and reading countless yoga blogs and journals. The more I practiced, the more I was hooked. After two years of practicing yoga religiously, many friends began asking me to teach them some basic asanas (positions), so that they may begin practicing at home. So I began hosting a ‘Yoga in the Park’ every Sunday in the ho
pes of spreading the joy that yoga had brought me.
Over the past three years, I have felt my body change, evolve, and transform, not only physically, but mentally as well. Yoga, in my opinion, is one of the best ways of releasing stress, anxiety, and negativity. Over time it can become a source of strength and empowerment, affecting not only our lives, but everyone around us. By controlling our breathing, clearing our minds, and focusing on the beauty that surrounds, yoga allows us to fuse our minds, bodies, and breath as one entity. Each of our journeys are unique, and although we are all trying to reach the same place of enlightenment, physical stamina, and mental clarity, the paths that each of us take to get there are completely different. Once we become aware and accept ourselves for who we are, we learn to recognize our habitual thought patterns without labeling them, judging them, or trying to change them. Throughout our journeys, we cultivate this awareness, making yoga a practice, rather than a task or a goal to be completed.
In the Hot Yoga setting, I practice Power Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and chakra balancing, with a mezcla (mixture) of restorative positions to help promote a calm, meditative state of being. I am currently working towards my 200hr certification through Yoga Alliance.
