Slow Flow & Stretch – FRIDAY 9:00AM
 A smooth linking of unhurried breath with movement, intensified by mindfully holding postures for several breaths to several minutes, awakening your body and clearing your mind. A slower flow will give you the time you need to explore the details of each posture at a comfortable pace. This mindful approach will allow your body to deepen into a stretch or pause in a strength-building pose. Expect deep hip, back, leg and shoulder openings with longer holds to gain strength and increased mobility. Anticipate leaving this class feeling rejuvenated and aligned in your body as well as your mind. Great for all levels.

Yoga blessed my life in a time in a time when I needed it the most, as I believe it does for all who seek. I embarked on this path after a knee injury ended my long-time competitive gymnastics career. For many years I was broken and soul searching to find something to fill the void. Nothing ever did. After trying various types of fitness, I stumbled upon a little yoga studio in Charlotte, NC. I was immediately hooked!


Every time I took a class it felt like my heart grew a little more. I was happy again! After practicing for a few years, I decided that I needed to share this amazing gift of yoga with others. After careful consideration, I signed up for an immersive Teacher Training deep in the jungle of Costa Rica with Frog Lotus International hosted by, Vidya Jacqueline Heisel and Jenilee Toner. There, I received my 200hr Certification and a whole renewed take on life. I came back home to Charlotte, began teaching, and never looked back.

Over the past years, I have taught at Suryalila Retreat Center in Southern Spain, received an Art of Assisting Certification from the Baptiste Yoga Institute, and have also been selected as a Brand Ambassador for Clean Juice Bar. Most recently, I have received my Advanced Teacher Certification with the Pranashama Yoga Institute in Bali, Indonesia. During my time here, I was fortunate enough to learn from such yoga masters as Dashama Konah Gordon (founder of Pranashama) and Rae Indigo.


After this training, I was selected to work for Pranashama, assisting in online teacher trainings and have happily been doing so since the start of the year. I am formally trained in Vinyasa, but also incorporate many different lineages into my classes. These influences include: Kundalini, Bikram, Power, Yin and various Pranayama Breathing techniques. I am currently registered as E-RYT200, RYT 500 in accordance to the Yoga Alliance. My mission is to spread joy in abundance, inspire people to see the world, and live a happy, healthy authentic lifestyle with love and gratitude, Namaste.
