Arise Yoga + Wellness’ mission is to inspire health in people to help them find peace and calm in life. We believe yoga is for ALL bodies, regardless of age, mobility, gender or anything else. We bring yoga to people through public and private classes, personalized teaching, workshops and more.
My yoga journey started in Austin when I was a child. Yoga was part of the curriculum at my school and I loved it! While growing up, I always had yoga books, and a lot of weekend mornings, Mom would find me doing yoga before breakfast if I wasn’t sleeping the sleep of exhausted teenage years. It wasn’t till about 2007 when I found a studio I loved that I really established anything close to a regular practice. Between moving a lot and having a hard time finding a studio I loved again, I mostly practiced at home, attending workshops and classes whenever I could.
In 2017, after years of wanting to complete yoga teacher training, I made that goal a reality! I completed my 200-hour certification from Alpha Omega Yoga, a Registered Yoga Alliance school, taught by Sheri Cherokee, E-RYT 500.
I love all types of yoga but really enjoy teaching gentle flow, yin, and Yoga Nidra classes. I find a lot of fulfillment working with seniors and people who have limited mobility.
I have taught classes in gyms, homes, rec centers, at retreats and outside with goats! Yoga can happen pretty much anywhere, for anyone!
Feel free to reach out with questions, I would love to talk with you about adding yoga into your life or event!
