“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” — Maya Angelou



In Flagstaff, Ariz., circa 2003, Keelyn Riley taught the first yoga class I ever took.

I was entirely uncoordinated, unaware, and unable to touch my toes.

Through practice, yoga transformed my body.

The postures gave me a physical strength that translated to mental strength.

Yoga provides the tools to continually heal my  body and my s e l f every single day.

Yoga is gift that was given to me. It’s one that I knew I had to pass onto others.

Was given the gift of my RYT200 yoga teaching certification from YogaOasis in Tucson after being the recipient of  Elizabeth Blue Scholarship. I owe everything to my teachers Darren Rhodes, Brigette Finely, Stephani Lindsey, Keelyn Riley, NamasDave, the great B.K.S. Iyengar… and all of the c o u n t l e s s others who have influenced my unique teaching style.
