I was born and raised in Northampton, MA. As a former elite winter sports athlete, I attended Stratton Mountain School and went on to compete at a national and international level. It was through a rigorous ski-conditioning program that I was first introduced to yoga. After college, I found Baptiste Yoga at Shiva Shakti Power Yoga in Northampton and encountered a practice that was unlike any training that I had experienced through my years as an athlete. I felt invigorated. Through Baptiste Power Yoga, I was able to access the raw physical body and tap into the well of potential that lies within our physiology.
Since then, I have received mentorship and training in the craft of leadership, teaching and assisting from Coeli Marsh, Brandon Compagnone, Naima Workman, Baron Baptiste and the Baptiste Institute. I have taught in the Boston area at the Baptiste Yoga Boston studios in Cambridge and Brookline, On The Mat in Concord, MA and Shiva Shakti Power Yoga at home in Northampton. In 2016 I began training with the InnerFire Wim Hof Method Academy as an extension of my mission to unleash human potential, health, strength and happiness through specific breathing techniques, mindset and cold exposure.
I am committed to inspiring students to realize their true potential, to have fun and challenge themselves while discovering tools that build a strong foundation for growth, and to live and practice with purpose, integrity and balance.
