Three words drew me to yoga, motivated me through teacher training, and remain at the heart of what I offer as I share my practice:
Love comes in many forms. Yoga has brought me a deeper level of self-love and has given me a more loving perspective towards the world around me.
Life is not always comfortable. Yoga has brought me more comfort in my own skin, and has taught me how to find more ease through life's challenges.
Whether my mat is solo in my living room or in a room full of others, yoga gives me a sense of community so that every time I step onto my mat, I feel like I'm coming home.
I practice and teach alignment-based yoga. Why?
The way that we go about our daily lives is not always in good physical alignment; from working at the computer, to playing tug-o'-war with the dog, and everything in between, our daily habits are not always done with awareness to our posture and form.
By bringing active awareness and intelligence to our actions in each yoga posture we are able to properly align the bones, thus minimizing pain and increasing the integrity and sustainability of our practice.
With consistent work through our yoga practice, we are able to carry this newfound awareness and knowledge through our daily lives.
In addition to my love for yoga, I am also an animal advocate with a soft spot for senior pets. Despite still having so much love left to give, senior pets often find themselves homeless and at high risk of euthanasia due to their age and the limited resources at area shelters. Since 2017, I have been a foster dog mama and volunteer with City of Elderly Love (COEL) rescue, an incredible organization who saves hundreds of senior pets in and around Philly each year. Opening my home to these senior animals has opened my heart, and that is why 5% of the proceeds from each purchase of private sessions and packages will be donated to City of Elderly Love, a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue dedicated to saving and enriching the lives of homeless senior pets in the Philadelphia area.
