I am a Curvy Yoga-certified yoga teacher based in Monteagle, TN. I’m passionate about yoga for every body — including yours!
While I’m not actively teaching yoga classes right now, I’m available for one-off workshops, classes (virtual or live), and other collaborations, including guided meditations (live or recorded). Get in touch if you are interested in exploring something together.
You can also join the Curvy Yoga Studio, an online yoga studio with videos from a range of yoga teachers … including me! Anna Guest-Jelley has done a marvelous job creating a welcoming online environment with a range of practice videos.
I first began practicing yoga in roughly 2003, but my journey into the practice was far from straightforward. My first several classes left me feeling like yoga wasn’t for me … I didn’t look like anyone else in the class, and I was left to struggle into poses with little guidance or support. In retrospect, it’s amazing I ever came back to the practice.
But I did.
I’ve found a stronger connection to myself — and, by extension, the broader world — by coming back to my yoga practice on a regular basis. It nourishes my soul, calms my system, and breeds gratitude for all that is good in this world.
I became a yoga teacher to share these gifts with others in my communities — particularly those who don’t see themselves in the popularized images of yoga practitioners. I believe yoga can work in any body, and I’m here to help you find your yoga.
Here is my favorite blog post about yoga: I love dogs … just not in my yoga practice.
I completed my advanced yoga studies certification (RYT-500, in tradespeak) at the Asheville Yoga Center in December 2021.
