I have been practicing yoga since my 20’s. As a lifelong athlete and runner, yoga was a way to get a good stretch in on my off days from the gym. However, after the birth of my first daughter, Sloan, I struggled heavily with postpartum depression and anxiety. Pair that with an infant that never slept and cried constantly, I was in a very bad way. In an effort to improve my mental headspace and get a mental break, I began attending yoga classes nearly daily. My teacher, Tina Lanzoni opened my eyes to yoga in a whole new way.
I learned to breathe, like REALLY breathe.
I learned to reflect, rather than react.
I learned to listen to my body in new ways
and bonus, I found strength in my body like never before.
Yoga was changing me and as I began to trust it’s process I was able to be a better mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend. I decided within that year that I would move forward with my 200-hour Yin-Yang Teacher Training.
Since the completion of my training in 2015, I have been teaching at YogaVibez Studios in Edgewater, MD. Teaching has brought on a whole new level of love to my practice. Watching a brand new student enter the studio for the first time, see them slowly evolve, have breakthroughs and see the joy yoga brings to them makes my heart so incredibly full.
I believe in this practice. I believe it can change your life. I believe that if you trust the process, yoga can bring unimaginable love and light into your life.
I am also a Lifestyle Newborn and Birth Photographer. If I am not running around with my camera in hand or breaking a sweat at the studio, you can find me chasing my two wild ones, Sloan (6) and Gemma (2) and driving my super patient and loving husband absolutely mad. I am passionate about living a sustainable lifestyle and eating clean to the best of my ability. I love sharing this passion with others and encouraging them to do the same.
