My Story

I started practicing yoga at a time when I was struggling with my identity and need to find some peace and meaning in my life. Yoga freed me from self-destructive behaviors and guided me towards self-discovery. 

As the years went by I slowly drifted away from my practice and became buried in my work, I was disconnected from the world around me; I had let my job and doctoral study consume my life. In recognizing a need for change, I found my way back to yoga through practice at Lotus Yoga in Grand Forks, North Dakota. That same year I completed my Ph.D. in education, health, and behavior studies, started a new position as the director of the Pride Center for Gender and Sexuality at the University of North Dakota, along with starting my 200 hour yoga teaching training; it was just the reset that I needed to re-center and find my purpose.

Today, I continue my practice as a yoga teacher at Lotus Yoga. I teach in a way that offers strength and resilience, happiness and joy, along with the freedom to express and explore. Together, we can connect through yoga to find a more fulfilling, happier, and healthier life.

As a passionate educator and yoga teacher, I believe that yoga has the power to transform lives and unite us. Having experienced the benefits of yoga firsthand, I want to help others explore their own path to self-discovery.

I teach yoga based on precision and alignment of the Iyengar lineage. My style is rooted in yoga philosophy and with a justice framework to uplift inner-healing towards our collective liberation.

Wherever you are on your journey, I will meet you there! 

"There is no progress toward ultimate freedom without transformation, and this is the key issue in all lives."
