Biography

 

I was born in Phoenix, Arizona and moved to the midwest at a young age.  I graduated with a BFA in Design from the University of Kansas in 2012 and received their 200 hr RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) certification in the Spring of 2013 through LifePower Yoga.  Kansas City, Missouri is my home base, but I am truly a gypsy at heart.  My inner nomad looks for opportunities to take my show on the road whenever possible.  I teach weekly classes at some of my favorite studios in KC, leading specialty workshops, organizing retreats and coordinating art shows.  I see my personal experience and my work as an ever evolving art project.  My passion is helping others to realize and free their own inner artist/visionary.  My mission is to help you to tap into your own wellspring of creativity, step into your truth and own your authenticity.  My approach is steeped love and the belief that everybody deserves to benefit from the practices of yoga.  I promise to meet you wherever you are in your personal experience to guide you through a safe, accessible and trauma informed practice.  I want you to know that I care deeply, that you are not alone and that the world needs your unique voice.  My hope is that in doing this work together, we learn and grow mutually to uplift the collective conscious.

Sedona on Art + Yoga

 

Yoga teaches us to live artfully.  To me, this means expressing from a place of radical authenticity.  I believe that if we listen and are honest with ourselves, we can use sacred art making along with the practice of yoga to maneuver through life with more joy and ease.

Both art and yoga mirror life.  Life is messy.  My commitment to art making + yoga practice has taught me that there is magic in the mess.  Everything is always in a state of flux.  Our inner and outer landscapes constantly shift.  Every day we are presented with new challenges.  We have two choices: to stagnate, or to walk through the fires of change. Fire is unique in it’s ability to transform any given substance.  Yoga is the practice of learning how to bravely walk through the brilliant, sometimes fear inducing flames with more understanding.  Through yoga, we learn to deal with consistent and inevitable change by staying connected to the divine part of ourselves that never changes.

My mission is to guide others through the fires of transformation with loving kindness.  I aim to inspire others to use the creative outlets of art + yoga to extract ample meaning and joy from life.  You will never come to my class to be instructed on how to be “better”.  You will learn how to be real with yourself.  I am not interested in meeting the “best version of yourself”, because I do not believe that exists.  There is no perfect, and that’s perfect.  I simply encourage you to be yourself.  Come as you are and move from there, I promise there is a space for you.
