Growing up in Nashville, Tennessee, I've always been interested in various types of movement. I have a background in competitive gymnastics and spent my childhood and young adulthood in the gym pushing my body to its limit. Yoga came into my life in 2009. I initially thought of it as a way to maintain my flexibility in a new way but soon discovered its power to help me cope with depression, anxiety, and auto immune pain. I finally found something that could challenge me physically and mentally and help me shed my competitive nature.
I began to deepen my practice in Portland, OR and finally embarked in a teacher training here in Austin. I was lucky to be part of HPYC's first teacher training and received my 200 hour certification in 2014. In 2015 I became a registered children's yoga teacher through Yoga Yoga.
When I am not teaching yoga, I coach non-competitive gymnastics to children, spend time bicycle touring around the country and enjoy camping and being out in nature. I am very grateful for this beautiful community and look forward to meeting you!
