Meet me on the mat
Where yoga meets empowerment
When I step on my yoga mat, I’m looking to connect on a deeper level with both myself and others. It is my goal for my students to feel the safety, compassion, support, and sense of community the practice of yoga has to offer. I bring my extensive training and passion for the deeper layers of yoga into my classes, workshops, and retreats. Join me!
Turn trauma into transformation
Why I teach
I teach yoga because I have been called upon to foster healing in a traumatic world. Teaching also helps me stay the course on my own continual path toward healing. In my classes, I draw from my own experiences to empower you to turn your trauma into transformation. My classes are carefully crafted to spark healing and transformation that’s true to you. Breath is the primary focus, and the poses are secondary. You will be challenged yet supported in your practice, and feel energized to continue on your given path.
A beginner level, calming, restorative practice to release the day and ease you into sleep. Props recommended: a blanket or towel.
A beginner level morning flow to help you wake up and meet the day with renewed energy
Act on your personal power
I invite you to connect deeper with your practice and explore how you can do that in a meaningful, practical manner both on and off your mat. Each workshop will give you a greater understanding of your personal power and inspire you to take action. Workshops include:
Guided discussions surrounding the workshop theme
Thought-provoking journaling prompts
Empowering group discussions
Yoga and/or meditation sequences for relaxation
Handouts of actionable takeaways, yoga poses, and meditations

Retreat with Au Yoga
Relax. Renew. Rise up.
What makes a yoga retreat so empowering? Escaping. Relaxing. Challenging your practice. Building community. Centering your mind. Cleansing your body. Reclaiming gratitude.
I love planning yoga getaways to bring the most magical, healing elements of retreats together, with both guided and free time to:
- Take a giant exhale and connect back to yourself
- Prioritize self-care this year by investing in your soul
- Take a pause from your everyday life and hit the reset button
- Disconnect from your day-to-day responsibilities to reconnect with your soul’s intentions
- Get outside of your comfort zone and experience the beauty and bliss of exotic locations!
- Meet other awesome yogis and feel energized by the positive group consciousness
Au Yoga Retreats include:
- Yoga classes (for every skill level), carefully crafted with our retreat theme at heart
- Empowering guided meditations
- Many opportunities to connect with nature, including group hikes and guided excursions
- Delicious, health-full meals made for the season
- One-on-one Off the Mat Coaching sessions to turn your retreat intentions into reality
- Tools, strategies, and support to overcome your challenges and embrace your opportunities with joy
Whatever adventure you seek – communing with nature, diving more deeply into your yoga practice, bonding with other yogis, laughing uncontrollably, taking charge of your health, or freeing your mind from work and stress – I’ll be right there with you as you rise up and renew.
