Professional Information
  I teach trauma-informed yoga trainings with a social justice lens through Collective Resilience (schedule and more information at collectiveresilienceyoga.com), and social justice, equity and anti-oppression trainings for yoga teachers, organizations, and studios through the organization Bending Towards Justice (more information and schedule at bendingtowardsjustice.org). I serve as Faculty for Off the Mat, Into the World, and the Yoga Service Conference.

I also do individual sessions, providing trauma-informed, body-positive yoga, yoga therapy, and somatics work, especially for queer and LGBTQIA folks, larger-bodied folks, people dealing with trauma, including the traumas of societal marginalization and oppression, and folks working with body image issues. I have specific training and experience working with trauma, sexual minorities, and bodies of various sizes and abilities, and work from an anti-oppression and Health at Every Size framework. I am a Reiki practitioner, yoga teacher, and trainer of yoga teachers and yoga therapists. I have additional specialized training in Thai yoga, yin yoga, body positivity facilitation, and iRest Yoga Nidra.
Education/Experience
I completed my yoga therapy training in 2013 and my Somatic Experiencing Practitioner training in 2015. I have worked with and trained hundreds of students through yoga teacher trainings, yoga therapy trainings, trauma-informed yoga trainings, and social justice trainings for yoga teachers, practitioners, and organizations.
