My mission is to make living in your body a healthier and happier place to be.

Movement with awareness can have deep and lasting effects in transforming your life.

I create classes, workshops and retreats where you feel strong,  healthy and grateful through conditioning, body awareness, great music and a supportive, friendly community.

Over 15 years ago, I began Nia to reduce stress, find joy and avoid knee surgery.  In 2013 I trained with MELT founder Sue Hitzmann  to help people achieve full pain free living.

 Teaching and facilitating nia technique and healthy movement for over 12 years, I continue to find health benefits in myself and in the students around me.

When not teaching, I can be found hiking the trails and spending time with my two daughters.

I look forward to moving with you.
