My Story

I’ve been in the health and wellness industry for over a decade, which has given me some perspective on what works and what doesn’t. My mission is to offer tools to help you tap into your intuition and inner strength so you can live a more vibrant and resilient life.

The Move + Meditate Method

The Move + Meditate Method fuses exercise and meditation. I created it to help students cultivate a stronger, more resilient body and mind. By working out first, we blow off steam and practice being present with the physical discomfort and sensations in the body. Then we meditate to give the body rest and connect with the deeper, wiser part of you.

About the Movement

Choose from a variety of heart-pumping, take-it-to-your-edge workouts to light up your glutes and core. Or if you need to chill, there are more grounded, restorative options to give your body a break. Wherever you land, you’ll find classes set to bumping music that move your body in all directions and pull together a mix of yoga, calisthenics, and plyometrics.

About the Meditation

The meditations are inspired by traditional yogic and Buddhist teachings as well as the wisdom traditions of humanity going back thousands of years. Expect a diverse mix of practices including body scans, lovingkindness, breathwork, and more. Each practice is designed to train your attention and refine your ability to work more skillfully with the energies of the heart and mind.

Music

Music drives the energy of each class. The majority of the licensed tracks you hear in class are various forms of dance music, but it’s important to realize this music isn’t just for our entertainment. It emerged in the 1970s and 80s as a response to oppression. House music came from LGBTQ communities in Chicago. Techno was created by Black Detroiters and repressed East-Berliners. Hip Hop and disco come from Black and Latino communities in New York.

History of Yoga

Yogic teachings date back to India 5000 years ago, and for 4500 of those years, the practice was strictly meditation. The asana practice that we’re more familiar with today in the United States was introduced in America in 1892 by Swami Vivekananda. While I don’t consider my classes to be straight-up yoga, I am a yoga teacher with a 200 Hour YTT. The practice is a massive inspiration for me and influences everything else I do.
