As a middle school classroom teacher for nearly 30 years, I used my yoga practice as a way to relieve stress while gaining strength and flexibility. The focused awareness and mindfulness practiced on the mat slowly began to transfer into other aspects of my daily life. What began as physical exercise has evolved into a means of maintaining a calmer, more balanced, mental and emotional state. In other words, Yoga makes me happy!
After finishing training from Haleybird Studio in Milwaukee in Integrative Yoga Therapy (200 hour IYT), I taught a variety of classes at the Wisconsin Athletic Club and the Rock Lake Activity Center. Since I truly believe that Yoga is for everyBODY no matter the age, size, or shape, I strive to provide classes that are safe and sustainable for all levels of fitness. A mix of postures, breath work, meditation, and relaxation are incorporated into every class. I am passionate about sharing the healing power of yoga, and helping others feel better in their bodies.
