About

My first yoga and meditation class was in my hometown of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, USA, when I was 12 years old. In 2011, I received my 200-hour yoga teacher training certificate through Samadhi Center for Yoga (Yoga Alliance Certified) in Denver, Colorado. Later, I completed an apprenticeship with Beth Gurypriya Sanchez, Level 2 Restorative Training, and Barre Training. Through my love of travel, I have had the opportunity to teach in Central and South America, Uganda, and Sweden in addition to several yoga studios in Denver, Colorado.

I believe that yoga is a deeply personal practice. As with any meaningful relationship, it shifts, evolves and deepens with time. Yoga has strengthened my understanding and knowledge of the body while connecting me with like-minded communities. Time and time again, the asanas (poses) and mindful breathing have been a gateway to connecting to my truest self, beyond the physical. It is these aspects of the practice that I am so passionate about and aim to share with others.

I welcome all levels, from beginners to more advanced practitioners, to my classes. I encourage you to find your own authentic movement in class; movement that is nourishing and sustainable so you can continue with this practice for decades to come. Flowing breath to movement, I invite you to listen to your body and to have patience and acceptance for where you find yourself.

When I’m not teaching, you can find me in Vejbystrand, Skåne with my Viking boyfriend, Ludde, and Polish pup, Bruce. I feel in my element while traveling and take great satisfaction in the excitement of exploring the sites, sounds, and tastes of a new destination. I believe the world is our greatest teacher and I work hard to see as much of it as I can, having currently visited 30+ countries.

Human connection is what fills me up and I believe community is a necessary ingredient for happiness. For me, a well-spent evening consists of sitting around a table with friends enjoying great food, conversation, and wine. I will also never shy away from some good live music and a little spontaneity.

Thanks for stopping by and I truly look forward to connecting with you on or off the mat.
