Yoga allows me to express myself with an open heart and open mind. Growing up in Kansas, I was always very active. My sense of adventure led me to try various forms of exercise including Yoga. After my first class, I immediately embraced the art of movement and breath that Yoga has to offer. My classes are playful as well as challenging and suitable for all levels. I am so excited to be a part of this amazing Black Swan community. I have the deepest gratitude for each and every one of you for checking out my classes! Namaste.
