Root to rise

 

I am a certified Professional Yoga Therapist (PYT) and a certified and licensed athletic trainer (AT). My educational background is in Athletic Training and Sports Medicine. I graduated from Quinnipiac University in 2008 with a BS in Athletic Training/Sports Medicine and then went on to get my MS in Athletic Training from the University of Kentucky graduating in 2010. My yoga practice started in 2007 when I took a class in college and loved the mental and physical release felt from the slower pace and inward focus of the practice. After my own knee injury in 2012, I discovered the PYT Institute, started my PYT certification, and began teaching in 2013. Since then I have been incorporating yoga and a more holistic approach when leading class and working one on one with clients.

My style of teaching is intentional and focuses on alignment while inviting you to listen to your mind, body and breath. You will always leave class feeling as though you have learned something new and created some space.
