I have always been an avid lover of life and particularly, life in the mountains. However, after years of rock climbing, trail running, snowboarding and mountaineering, I turned to yoga to heal failing body. What started out as a purely functional, physical practice, grew to so much more. As my body healed, heart opened and mind cleared, the stresses of life (big and little) began to simply roll through me and effect me less. My life became more vibrant and inspired than ever. Now, thanks to yoga, I continue play in the mountains with a renewed sense of passion and grace, excelling at the activities that once took such a toll on my body. In 2007, after practicing and teaching yoga for several years, I opened Simple Yoga in Hamilton, MT and took on teaching yoga as my “full-time job”. But really sharing yoga is more than a job, it is my passion in life and offering to this world. In total, I have been teaching for over 8 years and have 700 + hours of various teacher training and yoga therapy training. Recently, I sold my Montana studio and moved to Truckee, California, where I continue to dedicate myself full-time to the practice and teaching of yoga at Wanderlust Yoga Squaw Valley. I also travel back regularly to Montana as well as nationally to teach yoga workshops and retreats. I am eternally grateful to all of the teachers who have inspired my life and teachings: Nikki Doane, Eddie Modestini, Tias Little, Rod Stryker, Seane Corn, Noah Maze and many more. Through my teaching, I am fully committed to helping my students reap the amazing benefits of this practice and create a realm of boundless possibilities for their lives, whether their bodies are old, young, healthy or challenged in any way. I have students who are healthy and active and those with health challenges including: cancer, MS, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, arthritis and various structural disabilities and chronic pain issues. In my classes, students can expect not only to learn about the poses and the importance of precise alignment as it relates specifically to their unique body, but they will also have an experience with pranayama, yoga philosophy, meditation, chanting and mudras. Each student can expect to get lots of personal attention, work hard with dedicated intention, relax deeply, expand their awareness, increase their focus, laugh a little and be fully supported through that journey. But most importantly, my classes focus on students uncovering the truths about themselves, both in their humanity as well as their divinity. I like to remind my students that I do not give them anything they don’t already have or tell them anything they don’t already know, I just create the space for them to adventure towards uncovering their own wisdom. I am also passionate about helping the children of this world through seva projects. Recently, my husband and I have been working with the good people of Haiti to provide resources and possibilities for their children. When I am not at the studio, you can find me with the loves of my life – Lilli, Mark, Laila & Libby exploring the mountains with freedom in my body and lightness in my heart!
