I graduated from Edmund Morgan Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy in November 2005. I recently received my 200hr yoga teacher training, and I am also a certified PiYo and Barre instructor. I am honored to be a part of this yoga studio as a teacher and massage therapist.
I became a yoga devotee after a diagnosis of cancer. Yoga lessened the anxiety I was going through at the time. After a good outcome, I decided to pursue a teacher training course to deepen my practice. During this course, I was introduced to yin yoga and knew that this was what I wanted to teach.
I have my 200 E-RYT degree together with Yin Yoga, Level 1 and 2
I am a Certified Tai Chi Practitioner by the American Tai Chi and Qigong Association, and Tai Chi Instructor Certified by Tai Qi North Carolina. I am also a Certified Medical Qigong Therapist & Teacher by the Qigong Learning Institute, and a Certified Qigong Clinical Practitioner & Level II Instructor by the National Qigong Association.
I found yoga at what felt like a pivotal time of my life. My thoughts were scattered and I felt confused. Physically my energy was very low, but so was my self esteem. Yoga gave me so much understanding of myself and the world around me. The more I practiced and studied the better I felt physically and mentally. Now with my teacher training, I feel I am empowered to teach others. I am a mother, wife, daughter, sister and a small business owner.
I have been teaching Yoga for 12 years in the Lake Norman area. I am currently studying with Yogarupa Rod Stryker for her Master ParaYoga Teacher training. I completed my 200hr from The Bodhi Tree Yoga School and my 500hr from The Holistic Institute of Charlotte. My studies and travels have taken me around the world from Hong Kong to Fiji to Europe and Thailand.
I am passionate not only in my studies but my teachings. I teach not only asana classes but also Pranayama (breathwork) Meditation and Yoga Nidra.
I started practicing yoga in 2005, and fell in love! Even though my balance was horrible and I could barely touch my toes, I kept coming back each week. I was NEVER an “athletic” person, but wanted to stay active. Yoga is very forgiving and always welcomes you back with open arms. I completed my 200 Hr Yoga Teacher Training in 2014 and also became certified as a Barre Instructor. I love being around people and sharing all the wonderful benefits that yoga can bring into a person’s life. I live in Mooresville with my husband Doug and our fur baby. Blessings & Peace Out 😉
I love how yoga is such a wonderful expression of mind, body and breath movement. Growing up with music and dance my whole life, I was so excited to discover yoga after college as another expression of movement.
The best decision was to enroll and graduate the 200-hour yoga teacher training with the Om Factory in May 2019.
Grew up in Orlando, Florida. Graduated from UCF in 1995.
Married my high school sweetheart in 1996 and we have 3 lovely children. Love to spend time with my family and friends off my mat.
I’ve always known the importance of exercise, but it wasn’t until I was at a mental health conference in 2011 that I experienced yoga. I work with people on their mindsets, many of which are rigid, stuck, painful, etc and realize these same things happen in our bodies and that combining therapy and yoga it leads to so much happiness, ease and balance that we all so desperately need and this lead me to get my RYT 200 in 2019. I enjoy teaching a vigorous practice as well as deep stretch. I look forward to sharing my love of yoga with others.
I was a dancer, and from a young age I've always loved movement. Building on my degree in Exercise Science I began teaching Pilates in 2015. I love seeing students each week and helping them get stronger and better at exercising. It's rewarding to watch someone go from a point where they struggle to do an exercise to where they can perform the exercise with ease, or at least make it look like they do.
I graduated from The Edmund Morgan School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy in 2005. I specialize in Deep Tissue, NMT, Swedish, Cupping, Hot Stone and Prenatal. I treat each client as if they were a part of my family and try to give them the best massage each time they come in.
