Yoga is in every aspect of my life.  My practice has provided for me the space to breathe and connect to my body and spirit with a level of compassion and acceptance I had never previously had. From the moment I began, I embraced the practice wholeheartedly, and wanted to share this with others.

My training began in 2001 at Peachtree Yoga Center in Atlanta. I went on to train extensively with Tias Little, Doug Keller, Sean Tebor, Baron Baptiste , Mark White, and Sara Powers.  An impactful influance from Live Love Teach: Stacy Dockins and Phillip Urso.  Currently Tim Miller in the Ashtanga system.


I have been a liscensed Massage Therapist for 21 years and have a great passion for the human body in movement, anatomy and alignment, most importantly using this practice as therapy.  Sharing all of my experiences and knowledge is a joy for me in the 200 hour and advanced training progams.

I teach a breath and body based vinyasa flow class that is created in the moment, based on who is in the room. Students are encouraged to seek both challenge and joy, and to go deeper into relaxation so they may leave feeling open to whatever next comes their way.

I founded Jiva Yoga in 2001 and am happy to co-own with my husband Ken, and with the support of such an amazing team we thrive.
