I started Massage Therapy training in 2009 at Florida College of Natural Health in Maitland, FL and finished in 2010. After a little bit more travel I landed back in my hometown of St. Louis, MO where I continue to build the majority of my client base. I finished my first 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in March of 2012 through West-East Yoga in St. Louis, MO. I also did a 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training in March of 2017 through Sampoorna Yoga in Goa, India.
I am currently studying to add Personal Training to my resume so I can offer more client specific programs to get you where you need to be within goals specific to your fitness journey.
Currently I work with individuals, or small to large scale businesses teaching Yoga and other classes. I live with my partner and 3 dogs in South St. Louis.
If you are looking for a class in the local St. Louis or elsewhere check out the Class and Events Calendar. If you want to schedule a time for a single or small group class or meet, in person, online or just have questions related to Yoga Contact me. Thank you!
Licensed Massage Therapist/ Meditation, Yoga, and Fitness Instructor
Always all levels, with options to modify from start to finish.
Very slow and mindful movements with long holds in postures. This class becomes a deep reflection as your body and mind work towards a release. At the end focusing on various points of attention in order to become more present and self-aware. This practice even for a few short minutes a day could reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth.
Concept: Stillness, attention, relaxation.
This is a gentle introduction to a breath to movement (Vinyasa) class style with the option to do some longer holds in restorative postures to provide better alignment in the spine and other major joint groups.
Concept: movement to breath, long holds for some seated postures.
Here you’ll find a nice balance of intensity with ease. If you feel a pace is ever too much you can always take a break (this should apply to any practice), but with this class generally there are plenty of warm-ups and modifications to keep you feeling comfortable.
Concept: Movement and breath connection, standing balance posture options, some inversion options.
A class that provides strength building with the opportunity to modify if needed, but continues to provide a strong pace with lots of pulsing options. This is a heat building sequence followed by a short cool down and rest.
Challenge: Synchronize breath to movement with pulsation, faster movements, standing and arm balancing options, more heat (if in studio).
Experience both cardio and strength exercises followed by a gentle stretch or yoga flow.
Challenge: Cardio, Flexibility
