Body of Knowledge
I have been practicing yoga & pilates since 2000, and teaching fitness classes focused on anatomical alignment since 2008. I have earned teaching certifications through Blue Powder Productions, Athletics & Fitness Association of America (AFAA), The Dailey Method, & Yoga Alliance. My personal practice has evolved over years of learning to work with hypermobility, knowledge of vertebrate anatomy & evolution, and under the tutelage of amazing yoga, pilates, and barre teachers.

You are made of pieces of planet Earth
Everything we use, touch, smell, & see comes from planet Earth. Everything we eat, absorb, & breathe is of planet Earth. Some substances are toxic to us, & others are beneficial, and our knowledge what is healthy continues to grow. As such, I am increasingly conscious of what I put on & in my body, and often refer to the EWG (Environmental Working Group) Skin Deep website for product data. Search thousands of body products and find safer alternatives that are better for you and the planet.
