Like many, I first came to yoga hoping to address chronic aches, pains, and stiffness. I was blessed to have classes with the amazing Becky Thompson, at the Dorchester YMCA, as my first inspiration to deeper practice and the fuller range of yoga’s gifts, including its capacity to help us heal and grow.
Through Becky, I met another wonderful friend, Karuna O’Donnell, who further inspired me and first exposed me to Akasha Studio. Karuna and Becky have both inspired me with their work helping trauma survivors heal through yoga.
After attending a week-long conference at Kripalu, at Becky’s urging, my interest in teaching yoga had become a definite calling. Karuna guided me to Akasha Yoga School, where I completed my 200-hour training and began teaching.
In my classes, I strive to assist people in listening to their bodies, and do my utmost to make each class an accessible and welcoming experience for everyone who attends. I daresay no two classes are alike!
