Virginia Beach, Virginia
I grew up in a small town in Northern MD ad was attending college majoring in neuroscience when I found yoga. After awhile I fell in love and did my first teacher training! Fast forward, and now I’m a 500 RYT living in Virginia Beach, VA! I teach yoga full time and in the summer love teaching SUP Yoga on the different waterways here!
Outside of the studio I love traveling, Spotify playlist making, longboarding, blogging, adventuring, and lots of brunch food!

Raise your words, not voice.  It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.

What I love about Glide:
I love how my board is made for exactly what I want to do–SUP Yoga! Other paddle boards that I’ve tried just aren’t the same, because they’re not made specifically for SUP yoga! On top of that, it makes me so happy that these are such high quality, and eco-friendly too! I try to be as environmentally conscious as possible, and it makes me happy that it’s a priority for Glide too!
Top 3 songs in my Yoga Playlist: 
1. Slip by Elliot Moss
2. Make it Rain by Ed Sheeran
3. Indigo by Trevor Hall
Favorite Poses for SUP:
Headstand or Crow! I could do these poses so easily on land, and when I tried them for the first time during SUP, I was so humbled by how different they felt, and how much harder they were–they challenged me in a totally different way and really made me rethink how I practiced yoga!
Advice for Beginner SUP Yoga?
It’s okay to wobble and fall! SUP Yoga will feel very different from what you might be used to, and you might fall–and there is nothing wrong with that! Falling can be half the fun, and can teach you a lot about practicing if you let it 🙂

(plus on a hot day it can feel really great!)

Everything is hard before it is easy.

Favorite post-paddle eats:
I love to paddle in the morning and have coffee and breakfast food afterwards!
If you could meet anyone dead or alive, who would it be?
I’ve already met her, but would love to spend more time with Seane Corn and learn more from her! She is such an incredible person, and teacher, and she has influenced me a lot in terms of my yoga teaching!
