Health from Within
Loveland, CO 80538
In 2000 as a stressed out college student dealing with worsening knee and back pain from many years of long distance running, I found my way to a tiny yoga studio in Idaho. What began for me as a strictly physical practice continues to evolve and has deeply impacted my life in a very expansive way. I received my 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification in 2011 and have been teaching, practicing, and studying ever since.
I consider yoga to be my cross-training for life. It is a medicine that can be as subtle or as potent as my body and life ask it to be. My passions for Native American spirituality and nature; the other important medicines in my life; are woven into my yoga teaching and my joy is leading seasonal classes outdoors where we can reconnect to the rhythm of the natural world. I love introducing and demystifying this practice to folks drawn to it but who are uncomfortable with yoga studios.
Knowing how my own daily practice has been both a catalyst and a support for positive growth in my life, I enjoy sharing my experience with others drawn to the path. My hatha yoga classes emphasize alignment and focus on uniting breath and movement in a slow, meditative dance that I encourage students to carry with them off of the mat. I offer private sessions, seasonal classes, and collaborative workshops in the Front Range area.
