Teacher of Yoga,

and more.

"I believe anyone can have a mind-body practice.  I'm here to help you find the way that works for you."


I’m a Black, slightly overweight, middle-aged, agnostic, former corporate professional who abandoned the sedentary life to pursue my passion in healing myself and other souls through Visual Arts and Mindful Movement. Yup, that's one hell of a run-on sentence! 


Mindful movement (like Yoga and Pilates) asks me to look deep within myself for the truth. It isn't always pretty, but it is what it is.  This space of self exploration through mind-body movement has been most empowering and enlightening. Whether in a group class or private lesson, my passion is using my knowledge, skills, and life experience to aid my clients in finding their own truths. My joy is helping middle-aged people like myself, find strength, freedom, and most importantly bliss, in their own bodies.  That said, my teaching style is multi-disciplinary, playful, detailed, and exploratory so jump on in and have some fun with us!

My own back issues have lead me to practice and teach with a focus on maintaining spine health. I love teaching and sharing ideas with my students in order to expand and deepen their practice.   I like to think that for the short time I'm with my clients, I'm facilitating a part of their lifetime journey of practice and exploration. Without knowing it, they do the same for me.
