Influenced by my gymnastics training, my athletic classes focus on muscular and core engagement and link each movement to each breath. I begin my sequences by creating a strong foundation that sets up the design of the class, which then moves into logical shapes and patterns from there, and culminates in peak poses that utilize the strength and flexibility we develop in class.
My movement training began during my 8 years competing with the United States Gymnastics Federation. After graduating from college, I was a personal trainer and fitness instructor at Crunch Fitness, NYC. I completed the YogaWorks 500 Teacher Training program in 2016, the 500 hour Modo Level 1 in 2017, Modo Flow in 2018, Modo Freestyle Sequencing in 2019, a 36 hour Yin intensive at Integral Yoga in 2019, and a 70 hour Pilates Mat Intensive in 2020. I am now honored to be a full-time teacher at Modo Yoga NYC, a part-time teacher at YogaSpark, NYC, and a Peer Support Guide for Modo Yoga International where I mentor new teachers through their 500 Hour Level 1 Teacher Training.
Originally from Denver, Colorado, I am a graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. I am a proud member of the staff at Keen Theatre Company where I work as the General Manager, and I have worked as a professional actor, general manager, producer, and fundraiser Off Broadway for over 20 years.
