Founder, Utah Prenatal Yoga


Yoga provided a powerful and peaceful respite during my adventure into motherhood. Taking time for a yoga class that I loved helped me stay steady and focused on the big picture. I started teaching prenatal yoga when I was expecting my second son because I was inspired by how yoga had played such an important role in my transition through motherhood and pregnancy. I wanted to create a dedicated space for expecting mothers to fully connect with the physical and emotional changes that take place during the birth year. My wish is that every woman can find a place that offers support and preparation, an intentional time to connect with her strength and intuition while navigating motherhood.

I took my first yoga class in 1998 and I have explored and enjoyed various styles of yoga in the years since then. Over time I morphed into a mom and a yoga teacher. My yoga classes incorporate formal training in Anusara ® (alignment-based hatha) with my appreciation for other styles of yoga including Kundalini and Vinyasa. Finding the humor in having babies is essential to my sanity, and I sincerely believe that a consistent yoga practice can improve the experience of pregnancy, birthing, and parenting. You can expect a good (safe!) workout as well as ample relaxation in my prenatal and postnatal classes.

I’ve been blessed to have many amazing teachers, and I am grateful to every one of them. I am honored to have witnessed so many beautiful women embrace the fullness of being a mother. Most of all I am thankful for the support of my family– I love you bigger than the universe.
