Growing up in Alaska I have always enjoyed the outdoors and the adventure of living in this great state. Snowboarding is one of my passions. After breaking my pelvis in three places while snowboarding in 2003, I became interested in yoga as part of my rehabilitation. Immediately I was opened up to a world that forever changed my life. I began Hatha and Anusara teacher training in 2012 with Karen Greenwood at Inner Dance, and I am forever invested as a student. My goal is to share the ten years of education and knowledge that has been passed on to me in this great community. My educational back ground includes; Certified 1st degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. I am also a Certified Hatha Yoga Instructor; 200 hr Yoga Alliance RYT. Currently I am studying at the University of Alaska Anchorage; Bachelor of Science: Major in Health and Group Fitness, Minor in Athletic Training and Nutrition.

On the yoga-class spectrum, restorative yoga is at the opposite end from hot or flow classes. The concept behind restorative yoga is muscular release, as opposed to muscular stretch. The class is designed to allow the body to relax and nourish itself by holding a series of gentle poses for extended periods of time. Props are utilized so that the practitioner can fully surrender. These soothing postures offer an opportunity to linger quietly and savor the simple sweetness of life while inducing stress-reduction, increased circulation and calmness of mind.
