What’s your favorite part of teaching yoga?
I love being able to create a fun and safe space where my students can explore their yoga practice and play with new poses and deepening their practice.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Minneapolis.
The mystery novels by Irish author Tana French are all tense, insightful, and beautifully written.

Favorite restaurant in DC/VA/MD?
I love to reward myself with gelato after a good yoga practice. My favorite gelato place around the Dupont studio is Pitango Gelato. I’m also obsessed with Boccato Gelato & Espresso down the street from the Arlington studio.
Dream vacation or favorite vacation you’ve ever been on?
I’ve always wanted to go to Antarctica to check out the glaciers and to visit the penguins!
Favorite yoga pose and why?
I love all of the twists, especially supine twist. I just melt into the ground and can feel my body opening up.
If you could be one animal, what would you be and why?
I’d be a pampered housecat. Who wouldn’t want to nap curled up on a windowsill in a sunbeam all day?
What inspires you?
All of the incredible students who come to Tranquil Space inspire me every day.
