About Me

When I began doing yoga at 16, I experienced a huge transformation in how I thought about myself. In times slowing down, breathing, and pushing myself into new shapes in my body, I moved away from being centered on how I looked (if I was “beautiful” enough- a common women/femme concern we are socialized into), and into a space of how I felt and what I was experiencing. I learned how to tap into experiences of anxiety, joy, excitement, fear, etc. By connecting with myself, I also felt more equipped to connect with others. 


When I was 18, I did my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. This experience helped me move into leadership, and I also began facilitating/organizing environmental justice work. Now, informed by my 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training, and my masters degree in Sustainable Communities, I’m excited to facilitate spaces for healing and connecting. My relationship with the earth, cycles, seasons, and all life inspires me daily.


I’m committed to using an anti-colonial, anti-racist, queer lens in my life and work, and I know that I will always continue to learn and grow.


I’m grateful for my mentors and teachers: Steph Revering, Adi Shakti, Usha Anandi, Kim Curtis, and the earth.


I also enjoy organizing around climate/environmental justice, reading/writing poetry, being outside with my dog, healing with herbal medicine, growing/cooking food with my community, playing on aerial silks, and biking.
