Studio Owner | Original Hot Yoga Instructor | Yin Yoga Instructor
I tried my first Original Hot Yoga class in 2004 while I was traveling for a summer college internship. At the time I was practicing ballet and earning my engineering degree - weird combo! - and I was impressed with the intensity and precision of the 26 and 2. It was totally different from any other yoga classes I’d tried before, and I found myself coming back to it more and more often until eventually I was practicing every day.
In 2010 I decided to go “all in” with yoga and I left graduate school to attend yoga teacher training in Las Vegas. I’ve been a full time yogi ever since and I’ve never regretted it! I taught at various studios around the United States before landing in Pawtucket RI, where I met some of my favorite people. I opened my first yoga studio in Bristol in 2014, with the goal of having a nice little neighborhood studio where I could teach as much as I wanted. The vision evolved a bit! I’m now the proud owner of our two studios plus our wellness center, and I’ve found a new passion for training and mentoring new staff members and yoga teachers.
I live in East Providence with my husband John and our golden retriever Abby, who is living her best life as the yoga studio mascot and makes frequent appearances at the front desk. In my spare time - when I can get it! - I enjoy spending time outdoors, playing the guitar amateurly, baking excessively, and relaxing in our garden.
