yoga + wellness teacher
I teach connection. Connection to the body, to nature and to that universal love that holds us all together!
In my yoga teaching, we connect the body and the breath as a form of emotional and spiritual self-care. Through this connection, we embody compassion, joy and strength for ourselves & others.
In my astrology and seasonal connection teachings, we tune in to the energies of nature to inspire harmony & optimal growth in our daily lives!
How I Got Started
I found yoga like a lot of people do – from the bottom of a broken heart with nowhere to go.
I’d dabbled in yoga poses when I was younger thanks to my mom’s old Yoga Journal VHS tapes. My best friend and I would laugh and flop over the floor in attempted shoulder stands. I carried a bit of the practice with me to college, but then – like a lot of people – I got busy. I had schoolwork; I had a job; I had a boy, and I let my sense of self slip through the cracks. It wasn’t until I was standing at the wrong end of a painful breakup with no sense of direction that I realized I’d lost myself somewhere along the way.
After that, I threw myself head-first in to my yoga practice and the study of spirituality and meditation. I cried openly on my mat, created space in my body and my heart and found my way back to myself. I realized how transformative yoga and self-study could be and how much I wanted to share that with others.
Not long after, I made the decision to leave everything in my Midwestern town and relocate to New Orleans. I knew I wanted to study yoga and experience a bigger life, and that’s all I needed. I came down to the swamps with a wonderful support group, survived a flood, robberies, terrible service jobs on Bourbon Street, and began my studies as a yoga teacher.
New Orleans also provided a wonderful opportunity to explore and expand my interests. I began studying herbalism and paganism, and expanded what the ideas of healing and religion meant to me.
Now I’m a 200 HR yoga teacher, a young herbal entrepreneur and practical witch. I’m honored and thrilled to share my passion and the principles of this practice with my beautiful, New Orleans community.
