About Me

Can we get real about yoga for a moment?

We’ve all felt it: the glow, the confidence, the challenge, the self discovery…

…and then class is over, final savasana comes to a close and like a dream, all the best intentions to stay present have vanished the moment you roll up your mat, look at your phone, and rejoin the rest of the world!

What if you could keep that glow just a little bit longer before it started to fade?

What if you could easily and effectively translate and apply every lesson your practice revealed to you and then seamlessly apply it to your modern lifestyle — without shirking your daily responsibilities, isolating yourself from fast-paced modern living, or making choices that conflict with your intuition?

I’ve not only asked myself all of these questions, I’ve dedicated over 15 years to translate the lessons from the mat and modernize them into easy, effective lessons yoga practitioners of all levels — from the beginner to the advanced student or teacher — can use to build a lifestyle that aligns with what they love most about their practice.

My Background:

While many people seek the lifestyle lessons of the eastern healing arts from inspiration, my commitment stemmed from desperation.

At age 25, I was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease Multiple Sclerosis. Overnight, I became scared, disempowered, and worried that being myself was no longer good enough.

Already steeped in yoga, I believed the answers to how to reclaim my health, my confidence and my future could be found through practice, meditation, and mindfulness techniques. I completed hours of certification and mentorships in yoga, meditation, Taoist Healing Arts, and every Eastern methodology and philosophy I could find.

And this brought me great success on many levels, but I still craved a method to authentically connect my practice not only to my deepest self, but to the people in my life, and with my daily work.

I struggled through too many yogic systems and ideas that were too far removed from how I lived and the modern struggles I faced.

I decided to close this gap between the abstract beauty yoga embodies and the tactical reality of modern life.

I developed the system I live by each day, the tools and lessons that empowered me to reclaimed my health from MS, connect in a loving relationship, and find personal and professional fulfillment and abundance helping others do the same.

If you’re also continuously seeking a higher vibe, that next level of practice and understanding so you can create a lifestyle filled with authenticity, meaning, purpose, and passion, I’m glad you found me!

I’m here to share my proven systems on how to make lifestyle choices confidently guided by your intuition so you feel fulfilled, inspired and connected to your inner truth.   

Become that role model for your own self, your kids, best friends, and all of you peers. 

Instead of chasing opportunities, learn how to effortlessly attract the high-vibe people, relationships, and experiences you deserve. 

Live energized, free to be yourself instead of exhausted from struggling to keep up appearances.

All of this is possible for you because I made it happen for myself and I've been teaching these methods since 2003.

Once I was able to set my compass on course to be shamelessly authentic and really infuse my lessons from the mat into my day, my whole life transformed.

My Methods:

Since 2007, through my award-winning yoga studio, Steamtown Yoga, I’ve trained professional athletes, federal agents, political figures, and C-Suite Professionals to maximize their energy, recover from injuries, and find solace from the daily grind of inauthenticity and disconnection of body, mind, and spirit, that brings burnout, self-doubt, exhaustion, and dulls life’s true beauty, moving you away from your best self.

My book, Become the Architect of Your Body, Mind, and Soul, was a featured item in the Yogi Surprise lifestyle subscription box. I’ve been on podcasts and interviews sharing tools for transformation including the C-Suite Network, Stepping into the Light Podcast, Awake to Oneness Radio, and Fit, Fierce and Fabulous Podcast.

My wellness articles have appeared in Travel to Wellness, Creativity Magazine, Scottsdale Health, Lifezette, and First for Women Magazine.

Since 2012, I've hosted International Yoga, Meditation and Wellness Adventure Retreats in Greece and Costa Rica, and live workshops for the Yoga Studio Network in Costa Rica, Mindbody BOLD in California, and online webinars for Yoga Alliance. In 2018, Mindbody recognized me as a Visionary. 

My Vision:

My site contains a taste of easy and effective free trainings that will help you translate the lessons learned on the yoga mat and implement them effortlessly into your day.

Keep your “yoga glow” vibe shining all day long without retreating from your daily responsibilities, compromising your intuition, or isolating yourself from the fast-paced choices our modern, connected world demands.   

Instead, learn to use these lessons to forge strong friendships, intimate relationships, and make a difference in the world through meaningful work and a high-vibe mindset. 

If you want your yoga practice to reach the next level so you shine brighter in all areas of your life, then you’re in the right place!
