Why did you start practicing yoga?
To manage my weight! My best friend from high school encouraged me to try yoga after she achieved results through yoga, along with other lifestyle changes. Four years in, yoga is so much more than a vehicle for weigh management! It’s truly a way of life.
Describe what students can expect when they come to your classes?
A warm personal welcome and a bit of silliness while we practice, laugh and sweat together! A solid class with a vibrant approach, using a non- traditional music playlist.
What’s your style?
Special attention to form and alignment while keeping my students smiling through their sweat. A bit commanding but my whackiness does seep out from time to time.
What would your final meal be if this was your last day on earth?
Pizza! Specifically a caprese pizza that I do not have to share. And a nice glass of Pinot Noir.
What is your favorite song or artist and why?
So many…I love John Mayer, Eagles, Train and most Country. Currently loving the song Boxes by the Goo Goo Dolls.
Who or what inspires you?
My husband, children and grandchildren. My younger sister. My yoga mentors and students. I glean something from each of them Every. Single. Day.
What is a quote you live by?
From my Grandma Alice – “It will all come out in the wash.” (It truly does!)

What is one thing you couldn’t live without?
Music. It feeds my soul.
If you could live in a book, TV show or Movie, what would it be?
Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I love Holly’s sass, spirit and silliness. Moon River is one of my favorite Savasana songs.
What animal best represents you and why?
Dogs – they are irrepressible and kind. They always forgive. At least mine do.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and how would you use it?
To Fly – for a better view of the world and to be with people I love whenever I want, no matter how far away.
