My life’s intention has been to impact the lives of others and bring positive change.  I initially expressed my desire to make a difference in the world by obtaining my MSW (Masters in Social Work).  I then devoted my energy to raising our two daughters and shared with them my vision.


In 2002, I began taking yoga classes on a regular basis and found that the philosophy of yoga mirrored the way I lived my life.  The meditative, spiritual and physical practice brought a new rhythm to my days.  I began to develop a greater sense of flow and empowerment on all levels.

I was then guided to teach.


In 2005 I graduated from the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program at Kanyakumari and received my RYT certification (Registered Yoga Teacher). I then acquired certification from Radiant Child, Karma Kids, Sadie Nardini’s Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga, and Yoga Ed, which qualifies me to teach in schools.


After having taught to all ages since 2005, I then followed my heart and chose to specialize in teaching yoga and mindfulness solely to youth.  The population to whom I teach are toddlers through the teen years, including children and teens with special needs.
