About

My yoga journey began over a decade ago when I was introduced to and began practicing Bikram Hot Yoga. The competitive nature of Hot Yoga appealed to me, as it harkened back to my childhood and teenage years of competitive gymnastics. I spent quite a few years and thousands of hours in that hot room, sweating, stretching, and learning.

Practicing yoga became an integral part of my daily life. I broadened my experience and                                                                          explored a wide range of disciplines, including:  Hatha Yoga, Forrest Yoga,                                                                                          Vinyasa & Vinyasa Flow, Iyengar and Restorative. 

As my interest in and commitment to yoga grew so did my interest in exploring whole                                                                            foods. I sought to develop a better understanding of how what I put into my body                                                                                  affected my body. Those of you who know me recall my old food blog, circa 2013,                                                                                and may have a copy of my first self-published cookbook. I am now combining my                                                                                  culinary experience with my Yoga life and offer recipes and cooking ideas on this site                                                                            for you to enjoy in your home kitchen. 

Fifteen+ years of personal practice and instructional education have culminated to the point where I welcome individual or small group classes in my home studios. I also offer private yoga instruction and personalized yoga retreats.  Learn more >
