My Yoga Story



RYT 200, Business Owner & Yoga Instructor

I began practicing Yoga in high school in the 90's, kept it up through college, & 20 years of active duty service in the U.S. Army before retiring in 2021. Practicing yoga has helped me stay focused, flexible, and strong throughout a physically and mentally demanding military career of running, rucking, wearing body armor & spending countless hours hunched over a computer.  It is through this practice that I feel like I can keep going by healing from injuries and managing the aches and pains that can accumulate during life's adventures.

In my yoga journey, I studied multiple styles of Yoga but am most influenced by the Hatha and Ashtanga yoga practices. I have practiced 1,000 of hours online and in local studios before completing Yoga Teacher Training in 2020 with Katherine Huynh and Ashley Chandler at the Embrace Yoga Studio, Fayetteville, NC. I have also completed The Art of Teaching Mentorship program at the Yoga Sanctuary, Punta Gorda, FL under the guidance of Jennifer French.


In classes, I try to combine the benefits of opposites to work towards the inner balance. I find that an energetic and vigorous classes help relieve stress through expending energy. Conversely, a calm and soothing class helps us connect deeply to our own divine energy and revitalizes us to face challenges with greater equanimity.

I am excited to teach Yoga locally in the Southwest Florida  at The Yoga Sanctuary and here online through RWB Yoga.
