I am a Yoga Teacher, Reiki Practioner, Birth Doula, La Leche League Leader, Massage School Student, Essential Oil Wellness Advocate for doTerra, and a most of all, a mama!

Feel free to connect with me on twitter, facebook, and instagram! I am so glad you found this page, and hope you leave inspired!
Throughout my years teaching various styles of yoga, I have been particularly called to teach prenatal yoga. I always feel grateful to witness a mother to be in her journey through pregnancy and birth. I have completed two 85hr Yoga Alliance approved prenatal yoga trainings, and am an RPYT. I have a strong understanding of the anatomy of the pregnant body, a foundation in childbirth education, and a focus on prenatal health and spirituality. You can expect a class with me to be both nurturing and challenging, to prepare you for birth and to keep you strong during your pregnancy. In addition to prenatal yoga, I have also been trained to teach postnatal yoga, mommy & me, hot yoga, power vinyasa, family yoga, and children's yoga.
Gentle Parenting Support
I aim to help all mamas feel inspired and empowered to parent they way they choose, and I am passionate about helping them listen to their own intuition! I am a strong supporter in gentle parenting, including breastfeeding, baby wearing, positive discipline, etc. I love researching about how attachment and natural parenting shapes our children, and I am constantly looking to learn more! I am a La Leche League Leader, and serve mothers through free help line phone calls and in person meetings, to support them in breastfeeding, infant sleep, starting solid foods, and other concerns they may have. I also lead a variety of groups for moms, such as newborn and toddler play groups, mothers' book clubs, and even wine nights for moms! I know how hard it is to constantly give of yourself as a mom, and how important it is to find a circle of women who will help you care for yourself!
As your doula, I will be your companion and support through out your pregnancy and birth. I am trained in birth positioning, natural remedies, and relaxation techniques, but most of all, I bring a sense of calm and compassion to your birth. Each mama is unique, every birth experience is unique, and I work with you and your partner to create a birth plan that honors your individual preferences. Giving birth to your child is an experience you will remember for your entire life, and I am honored to be there to serve you on that special day. With me, you will receive 1 prenatal visit, continuous birth support from the onset of labor, and 1 postpartum check in.
