Professional and Personalized
I offer a variety of classes depending on your personal needs and goals. Have a look at what I offer.
Private Yoga Mat Practice
I am first and foremost a yoga student. I started my yoga practice in late 2013 when I was seeking a physical and spiritual connection that I felt was lacking in my life. Yoga did not help to heal or “cure” me, yoga did allow me the space to begin to heal myself and showed me more tools that made sense and lead me into more self-awareness. The passion for my practice continued for over 2 1/2 years when I decided to take teacher training in early 2016.
I recently decided to teach yoga full time and leave my finance career. The pandemic not only opened up space in my life to begin taking on private clients, it also made me realize that I could make my dreams begin to come true with doing what I love full time. I have over 6 years and 1000+ hours of teaching experience with several classes a week and private clients as well. I am currently teaching at Your Yoga Studio located in West York, the York City YMCA, 1881 Salt Sanctuary, Bodhi Yoga in Shrewsbury and White Rose Senior Center in York City. I also offer private sessions (yoga and sound) and other events/workshops locally. I have a 200ERYT certification and am registered with Yoga Alliance, 40hr RYT aerial yoga certification, 20+ hours of training in trauma-informed restorative yoga, 3 hours of pre-natal yoga training, 6 hours of intuitive assisting training and I’ve assisted 200hr teacher training at House of Yoga in 2020. I am FirstAid/CPR certified until Sept 2024 and I have all of my clearances including fingerprinting to work with children. I am a recent graduate of the Sound Healing Practitioner 6 month program with the Soundwise Institute of Lancaster, PA with Lana Ryder. I incorporate sound healing into all of my yoga classes.
I want to help my clients/students help themselves create a deeper, more authentic connection to their true self and their physical being. I do this by being a non-judgemental, safe space holder, by actively listening and helping clients/students to tune in to their breath, body, mind and heart.
