“Health, wellness, and health education has always been an important part of my life whether I was in college personal training or caring for patients as registered nurse. Somewhere in the midst of “doing” life I lost sight of just “being”, and that’s when yoga found me ultimately inspiring me to open TULIVESI Yoga studio years later to share my love of yoga with my community. I wasn’t searching for it, but it was at a time my body and mind was ridden with anxiety and exhaustion that meditation first found its way into my life, soon followed by a regular studio and home practice. Practice by practice I’ve learned to release my grasp on life and roles, and see the world in a new fresh way. Living my practice has brought me experiences and opportunities I otherwise wouldn’t have made room for in my life. It’s taught me the true reward of patience and listening to the whispers of the soul. My passion for a deeper understanding of yoga led me to the study of Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga. My approach to finding balance and bliss in life arises from my fusion of yoga through philosophy, eastern, and western medicine. In my classes you will find a strong foundation of alignment, probably some arm balance options which I love, mixed with a humorous side of quirky. I enjoy leading creative fun flows that embody all of the elements and allow sensation of the subtle body and breath to lead the way. When I am not teaching yoga I enjoy spending time with my husband and dog Rambo, paddleboarding and kiteboarding on Lake Superior, skiing, snowboarding, camping, and hiking in the woods.”
