In my early 20’s, the beauty and adventurous spirit of the north drew me to Southeast Alaska to spend a couple of summer seasons as an outdoor guide kayaking, biking, hiking and connecting with people from all walks of life. With more to explore, I moved to Fairbanks, Alaska where I earned a BBA Degree from the University of Alaska. In the coldest, darkest month of winter, a friend introduced yoga to me in my home with a yoga video as a form of movement that I could practice indoors. I then started to practice at home daily, curious and fascinated with my mind and body transformation. After a year of practice and intense self-study, I decided to learn more about yoga at a teacher training.
I graduated as a RYT-200 Yoga Teacher from the Nosara Yoga Institute (NYI) in 2012 and immediately started teaching at a local studio in Fairbanks, Alaska. I also taught for the university yoga club and in the public school system as part of the physical education curriculum. With a desire to advance my teaching and mentoring skills, I continued over the next couple of years to earn my next level of certification as a RYT-500. I also gained specialized certifications in Yoga Anatomy and Teaching Yoga to Athletes. During this time, I made a move back to my hometown of Boise where I currently teach.
