I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher certification at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in 2012. Kripalu yoga is a style of Hatha yoga that encourages compassionate self-awareness and nurtures personal growth. Kripalu yoga embraces asanas (postures), pranayama (breathwork) and meditation as tools to cultivate strength, flexibility, calm and focus. I integrate yoga practices into personal and professional daily life.

Evolution Pt & yoga
Evolution PT & Yoga is a thriving yoga studio in Burlington, Vermont offering community-oriented yoga, physical therapy, prenatal and family yoga, and yoga therapeutics for healthcare providers. Since relocating to Burlington, Vermont in 2016 I have been offering therapeutically-oriented yoga classes, workshops, and series at Evolution. As the Program Coordinator of the first-ever Evolution School of Yoga 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training I collaborated with co-lead trainers to bring a unique mission and vision to life.
Social Work and Yoga
I offer clients the opportunity to integrate yoga into social work treatment. Yoga postures, meditation and breathwork are tangible tools that clients learn to practice in the therapeutic space and apply to daily life in an effort to manage stress, anxiety, and trauma effects. In addition to my 200-hour yoga teacher training at The Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, I have also completed noteworthy continuing education programs with leaders in the field including Yoga and the Traumatized Body at The Trauma Center at JRI and Frontiers of Trauma Treatment at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. I have presented on the topic of mindfulness, yoga, and integrative mind-body-spirit approaches in social work practice, education, and reserach at a variety of institutions and organizations.
Yoga for Athletes
I integrate yoga into cross-training regimens for athletes to assist in developing a healthy relationship with the body and to support an athlete in reaching their full potential. Athletics is a powerful, often competitive, and demanding space in which growth and development take place. Athletes can experience physical and mental challenges in the competitive and non-competitive sports world. Yoga is a practice that compliments strength-training, helps to develop greater flexibility, supports injury-prevention and cultivates focus – essential elements of an athlete’s training regimen.
