Growing up in Cortez allowed me to appreciate the many different connections between the human, natural, and spiritual worlds— though I didn’t realize that until after I left. I have practiced yoga all my life, but I re-learned the importance of self-care and physical activity while living in Belgium for a year and finishing my degree in Political Science at Oberlin College in Ohio in 2015. I soon returned to the area to reconnect with the landscape and work as a public radio host at KSJD Community Radio.

In addition to my yoga practice, I also enjoy hiking, trail running, skiing, mountain biking, and dancing. I am a regular practitioner of Vipassana meditation. I received my yoga teaching certification from Heart and Core Yoga Studio in April of 2017, and I look forward to continuing my journey into the future.
