My intention in offering yoga instruction arises from the inner transformation that came through my own experiences along the meandering path of life through the teachings of Tantra, yoga philosophy, and Prana Vinyasa Yoga.  The term "wildflower"  sprang to life as a moniker for the overarching offering of my soul to yours due to the sahaja (spontanaeous) nature of wildflowers- blooming wherever their seeds may be transported by the wind (vayus) of Mother Nature.  The divine seed (bija) that contains within it the beauty of a tender flower represents the extreme wisdom we all contain within our minds and hearts- watering this seed with our breath, meditation, and yoga practices draws the innate wisdom from the seed into the light.  My offering is simple:  to tend the garden of sacred space so that your souls have a place to land and blossom through practice. 

The yoga that speaks to my heart, Prana Vinyasa Yoga, came through my life as a student in 2008 via the Raleigh, NC collective of teachers.  In 2010 I completed Evolve Vinyasa Yoga 200 hour Teacher Training with Carson Efird, and in 2014 graduated from her Prana Vinyasa Yoga 200 hour teacher training affiliate program at Evolve Movement, NC.  In addition to these trainings, I've received certification in restorative yoga and have extensive experience with Prenatal, beginner yoga + Chair Yoga for Seniors.  2017 is an exciting year, as I serve as an intern for the Prana Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training program team.   I am humbly grateful to Shiva Rea, the creator of Prana Vinyasa, and the global tribe of senior teachers within our collective, and all of the friends and teachers I draw inspiration and knowledge from along the way.
