My Story

I would have never imagined {in my wildest dreams} that I would change careers and become a yoga therapist and dedicate my life to helping women make themselves a priority. In fact, I kept saying no for a while. But listening to my heart has led me to some incredible places...and I'm so honored to be able to share my creation with you.

I've been a yoga practitioner for at least 15 years {I can't even remember now} and I've tried it all. I've been blessed with being able to share yoga with veterans experiencing chronic pain and PTSD, empowering women to feel themselves again and seeing how transformative these practices can be for everyone of my clients.

Background

I am passionate about sharing the therapeutic wisdom of yoga and have practiced for over 15 years. I was inspired to become a teacher after sharing the practice with my young niece over 10 years ago. Having suffered from the adverse effects of burnout, I am a huge advocate for self-care and now dedicate my life to sharing yoga, meditation and self-care rituals as therapies to empower women to be healthy, stay sane and feel good again.

I hold the Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) designation from the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) and I also lead 200-hour Yoga Teacher Trainings at Embarque, the yoga studio and holistic health spa I own in Indianapolis, Indiana.

As the host of the Wild Wisdom Podcast, I get to interview some incredible people. I also lead retreats across the globe, combining yoga, meditation and equine therapy to help women connect with nature to connect with themselves.

I have been honored to share yoga as a therapy with veterans experiencing chronic pain and PTSD over a three-year research study in conjunction with the VA and work in a specialized clinic with patients in a hospital setting. I have seen firsthand how transformative yoga and meditation can be for many people.

When I’m not speaking, teaching or leading retreats, you can find me with my feet in the grass, hiking with my beloved dog, Ellie, or spending time with horses at a ranch.
