I trained as a dancer for 14 years, with bits and pieces of yoga practice here and there. It was only when I played one of the main roles in a musical (Grease, I was Rizzo) that I decided to take on an at-home practice to make up for all of the dance classes I was missing. Over the course of this new venture, I discovered the depths that yoga practice can go. That it’s much more than just moving your body, although that part is revolutionary on its own. I have a history with trauma, and yoga and meditation have been integral to my recovery process. My approach is to work with your body rather than on your body, and thus we create a practice that is sustainable and meets you where you are today, no matter where that may be. Together, we will uncover what “being a better friend to yourself” means for you, and lovingly challenge ourselves to meet our appropriate edge.
