With over 15 years of teaching experience, she specializes in demystifying yoga and helping students become comfortable with it regardless of their experience, fitness level, or health.  She works with those living with anxiety, arthritis, cancer, and other types of chronic illness. Her multi-disciplinary approach to yoga therapy helps students manage their chronic pain, stress, and mobility issues.
