I'm a carniverous, red wine and French cheese-loving, traveling yoga instructor based in Tampa Bay. I teach vinyasa flow and aim to keep my classes fun and accessible. You won’t hear much Sanskrit but you’ll probably get plenty of corny jokes, lots of core work, and sweet, delicious deep stretches. Teaching yoga has been one of my greatest pleasures; I practice to feed my teaching, but I teach to feed my life. For daily adventures on the mat, in the world and around the kitchen, find me on Facebook or on my website at

There's a giant pink elephant on the yoga mat, and I'm just gonna come out and say it. How come when I go to any new-to-me yoga studio, or hang out with a group of "yoga people," I feel more judged there than anywhere else? At least half the time...
