Like many others, I first tried yoga as a last resort. I was a competitive athlete and distance runner for many years when a severe hamstring injury brought me to my mat. I continued to practice off and on and began to realize that yoga is so much more than a physical practice. I started to understand yoga’s full potential. After working as a physical therapist for more than twenty years, I made the leap into teacher training here at Lexington Power Yoga. This journey was transformative for me and I knew then that I wanted to keep learning and keep teaching. I wanted to share the benefits of yoga with as many people as possible.
I am a strong believer in the mind-body connection. By combining breath with movement and creating a flow, yoga can calm the body and bring clarity to the mind. We can take that peace and clarity with us as we navigate through our day to day lives.
Drawing on my physical therapy knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics, I hope to guide my students through a very safe practice, offering specific modifications when necessary. If you are dealing with any injuries that I might be able to help with, please feel free to reach out.
I am so grateful for this practice and this community. I also am endlessly grateful for my husband and three daughters. I love the outdoors and hiking or running on trails is one of my favorite things to do. I also love returning to Maine, where my husband and I grew up~ turning off all electronics and just “being”. Not unlike the feeling I get on my mat.
