Operations Manager/Teacher

I first began practicing yoga at age 15 as a way to balance out dancing and long distance running. Throughout my late teens and early twenties, yoga helped me learn how to breath deeply, be a little more present, and feel more in tune with my body and mind. My love of yoga was solidified, but it wasn’t until 2017 that I began practicing almost daily. I found a home studio at Firelight, and it felt like walking into a safe space where I could allow myself to be vulnerable and begin the work of healing.

Throughout the next few years, I took various classes with the amazing instructors at the studio, and I found myself being called to learn everything I could. I began working at Firelight in the beginning of 2019, in February of 2020 I embarked on FLY’s Teacher Training Program, and I graduated in June of 2020. I am eager to continue learning, and my goal is to create a safe space where people can heal, move, and feel comfortable in their bodies.
