About Me

Why practice yoga? Yoga teaches us how to regulate all thoughts, desires, and actions. Yoga gives poise and the tremendous will-power needed to become a master of oneself. When we master the constantly changing mind, we find lasting peace. And the truly peaceful person brings peace to all who encounter her.

What "style" do I teach? That depends. Sometimes gentle, sometimes rigorous - but always safe and grounded. In most classes you'll experience some pranayama (breath work), vinyasa (intentional placement of breath and body) and meditation. With a focus on core strength, safe alignment and balance, but ultimately you will be asked to surrender to what is and work hard to stay true to your authentic self.

Who am I?  Tat Tvam Asi.  In clock time, I am a mother of three wonderful girls and a son, a marketeer for an economic development nonprofit and a wife to an exceptional litigation attorney.  I've lived in the suburbs of Boston, Spain, Los Angeles, New York City, Providence, and now Foster, RI where I've found home.

I have a BA in Psychology, Philosophy and Spanish from Providence College and I spent a semester abroad (oh so long ago) at the University of Salamanca, Spain.  My day job now consists of mothering and business development work with Accion East, a rock star of domestic microfinance and promoter of small and local entrepreneurs.

Practicing yoga has allowed me to stay healthy and grounded, even in the face of hardship. Yoga itself comes with its own struggles. It takes work and practice to maintain balance and to grow as a person. Dedication and commitment are big words. You cannot fool your way to health and healing.  Yoga is a gift that I love to share. The more I teach, the more I learn. Come share in the experience and learn for yourself just how yoga can positively impact your life.

I'd like to thank my husband and family for supporting me in this journey of teaching and living yoga.  I am so grateful to Tom Gillette and the community he created at Eyes of the World (now home to All That Matters) in Providence, RI.
