Yoga, conscious breath, and meditation have been an integral part of my daily life for more than 25 years, and I'm passionate about sharing tools for well-being in an accessible, individualized, and down-to-earth way.
I specialize in gentle and restorative yoga, breath retraining, yoga nidra and other approachable forms of meditation, as well as individual and group sound sessions.
An E-RYT 500 as well as an Advanced Trainer in Relax & Renew™ Restorative Yoga, I also hold a certificate in Curvy Yoga. I'm a Certified Buteyko Educator, yoga nidra teacher trained by Mia Park, and sound practitioner trained through the Suren Shrestha founder of the Atma Buti school. You can experience my guided Meditation and Pranayama experiences on Insight Timer. I welcome and embrace the needs of all bodies in my classes, and I love to customize each practice with the skillful and creative use of props and modifications. I've been training teachers since 2011, and it's my passion to mentor teachers to help them authentically shine.
Currently I'm an MA Candidate in Somatic Counseling: Body Psychotherapy at Naropa University. I'm also past chair of the board for Yoga Alliance, and I have been a YA volunteer since 2012.
In 2004 I founded Bloom Yoga Studio, consistently voted Best Yoga Studio in Chicago. My husband and I relocated our family to Boulder, CO in 2018 driven by a deep desire to re-engage with nature and give that gift to our three kids. I'm incredibly grateful to continue my studio ownership role from afar thanks to our stellar team of managers and staff.
