RYT 500, Zumba Instructor

In my teaching, I emphasize safe alignment and mindful transitions, and help you give yourself permission to honor the body you bring to the mat today, while also being empowered to learn about the body’s intelligence and power. I infuse my classes with the foundational principles of inclusivity, consent, body positivity, and self-acceptance.

And while I take safety, consent, and respect very seriously, I also can’t help but be ME – big, loud,  silly, weird me. I like to have fun and show you that moving your body doesn’t have to be a chore. It can be full of laughter and joy and personality, too.

What’s next for Yogi Plus Yoga?

I have so many big plans for Yogi Plus Yoga over the next few years. Online video and coaching resources for yogis who are in larger bodies, an eCourse for yoga teachers who want to make their classes more inclusive to all, and a Yogi Plus Yoga retreat to the Peru – it’s safe to say I’ve got a bunch of stuff up my sleeve. Be sure to sign up for free updates so you know what’s coming.

Thank you for joining me here. I couldn’t do it without you!

My goal is to empower you to live your life out loud – in the body you have today – without shame or apology.

For me, yoga has been an integral part of a decade-long journey toward self-acceptance and body positivity – a journey of making peace with my body and helping others to do the same.

I know what it’s like to struggle with low self-esteem, bad body image, disordered eating, and the desperate shame that comes with feeling that I’m not enough.

I also know what it’s like to fully inhabit my body. To see my body as a weapon, an ally, my partner in crime. To accept myself – imperfect, flawed, broken – and come out on top to live a life without shame or apology.

I know what it’s like to finally realize that I am enough, just as I am.

Yoga cracked open that knowledge for me. And I want to do my level best to share that experience with you.
