Welcome to Family Tree Yoga, a virtual yoga community for you and everyone you love. My goal is to provide families with opportunities to grow more mindful together, while also teaching healthy movement habits.
I strive to create an inclusive, accessible space for all yogis, brand new and seasoned, to grow their practice.
I offer kids yoga and beginner classes, in addition to a variety of vinyasa and restorative flow classes.
I hope you'll join me for class soon!
I began my yoga journey in 2001 following a dance injury, with the intent of learning more mindful movement, and to rebuild the physical strength I'd lost in recovery. The whole truth, is that my mother coaxed me into her yoga class at the YMCA., and I hated it at first! As a true high schooler, I was determined to defy whatever my parent thought was a good idea. But I kept going back. Every time I felt the need to reset or refocus, it was always yoga that helped me to get back on track, both mentally and physically.
Driven to pursue a career in movement arts, I earned a BFA in Dance/Theatre from Emerson College. With a strong background in classical ballet and modern dance, I bring a deep understanding of the human body and its potential, and I believe that everything we need lies within us.
In 2012 I graduated from the 4 Pillars of Freedom Yoga Teacher Training (RYT 200) under the guidance of Roman Szpond and Lauren Star, and the Om Births Prenatal Teacher Training with Bec Conant. I have been teaching in the Metro Boston area since 2013.
I am currently a faculty member at Down Under School of Yoga in Boston, where I teach a weekly prenatal yoga class.
I offer my students a creative and safe asana practice with an emphasis on alignment, pranayama (breathwork), and the importance of finding sthira and sukha (strength and ease) within the practice, to be applied in daily life.
In my children's classes, I use songs, poetry, and storytelling to practice gross motor skills, teach mindfulness, breathing, and basic yoga principles.
I am a mother to two beautiful daughters, who join me in my daily practice, both on and off the mat.
I'd love to hear from you! I am also available for private bookings in person or via Zoom (for both 1:1 sessions and events).
Based in the Boston, MA / Providence, RI area
