Yoga Instructor & Birth Doula
"By learning to find stillness through movement, my classes provide a safe place to be yourself and find your sayta - or truth."
"Late night kitchen dance parties, sweaty runs, the sweet flow of breath centered yoga; it’s only after such activities that I can pause and really hear what my heart has to say. When I sit and rediscover that steady beating, I breathe into the space in front of my spine, behind my ribcage, connecting to whatever feels nourishing for the moment.
I have been practicing yoga since 2010. I became a doula in 2019 where I have attended numerous births at St. Joseph's Medical Center, Johns Hopkins Hospital, and Franklin Square Medical Center, among other local hospitals.
I teach with an emphasis on learning to listen to what your body needs in each pose and focusing on an easy, steady breath. You can find me Saturday mornings at The Womb Room teaching Prenatal Yoga or Baby and Me Yoga, infused with all the poetry, affirming mantras, and movement your heart can handle."
