PYT, RYT-800, E-RYT-500, ACE-cGFI

I’ve  been teaching yoga since 2006 and enjoying the physical practice since 1999. I believe I’ve been learning and practicing the many other limbs of yoga my entire life. I enjoy dedicating my time and energy to sharing the gift of yoga with my students.

I am a Professional Yoga Therapist (PYT-800) and Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (ERYT-500) through Integrative Yoga Therapy and the Yoga Alliance. I completed my initial 200-hour certification through the Yoga Center of Minneapolis. I am also a certified Pre and Post Natal Yoga Instructor through Global Yoga Center in Chicago, a Certified Group Fitness Instructor (c-GFI) through the America Council on Exercise (ACE) and CPR/First Aid Certified through the American Red Cross. Yoga and Yoga Therapy are my passion and I look forward to sharing with others what continues to help me heal my own physical, energetic and emotional body.

In my previous life, I worked in the advertising world and I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business, Advertising and Spanish from the University of Saint Thomas in Saint Paul, MN. In 2009 a job offer brought my husband to Milwaukee, and I decided I would join him on the adventure:-) Moving here from Minneapolis brought many opportunities and the biggest one was taking a chance on teaching yoga full-time.  I let go of my corporate career in advertising and decided to focus my energy on helping people heal and get closer to their true-self through the practice of yoga. I love and miss all the friends I made and the clients that I worked with in the advertising business, but being a Yoga instructor and Yoga therapist is my passion. I feel blessed to be doing what I love and sharing it with others each and every day.

In addition to practicing and teaching yoga, I enjoy spending time with my husband Ian and my dogs Willow & Ivy (we miss you Walter!). I love to run, bike, garden, travel, spend time with my friends and family and partake in just about any activity outside when the weather is warm! When the weather isn’t nice, you can find me inside cooking, reading, vegging out or remodeling something.

I specialize in Yoga Therapy for back care, auto-immune presentations (MS, RA), chronic/adrenal fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, depression, weight-loss, women’s health including: fertility, pre/post-natal and menopause/hormonal challenges, Parkinson’s Disease and movement based yoga for strength and alignment.
