My journey in fitness began in childhood with team sports. During college, I explored a range of exercise modalities, and I continued to be active in different forms of movement throughout my two pregnancies and in the postpartum recovery. To this day, variety continues to be the spice of life in my personal fitness and wellness. I have taught group yoga classes since 2009 and am presently pursuing the 800 hour Yoga Therapist certification through the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). I love the intuitive, holistic approach of yoga, as well as the evidence-based methods of fitness.
As a trainer, I draw on both to create for my clients personalized sessions that move toward their goals effectively and efficiently. As a wellness professional, I have seen that the way we view our bodies and what we do with them has ripple effects across all planes of our being, and there is nothing more rewarding in my work than to see how caring for the body can bring about positive change in other aspects of life too. I view my role as a guide and encourager for my clients. I want them to thrive, and by providing the proper tools, I hope to see them empowered to take charge of their own wellness.
