Hello new and returning friends of the Wanderlotus Community!
I am a Colorado native, born and raised, originally from the Littleton, Colorado area. In 2016, I spent a majority of the year traveling out of a backpack and hitchhiking across New Zealand. Ultimately, that led me into Southeast Asia where I spent a few months between Thailand and Cambodia. I was in "awe" at the gentleness and peace that seemed to accompany this yogic and meditative lifestyle. It was here that my practice began and I started seeking out any place I could find to practice yoga on the road.
After my travels, I came home and went back to "normal life". The good old American dream of overwork and burnout. Just a few short months after I had arrived back home from my travels, my mother died suddenly of a heart attack. After weeks of numbness and complete denial from this grief, my practice found me again. Every week I would go to one yoga class. One hour a week I could find peace, I could feel whole again. Yoga became the foundation of a long healing journey.
In 2018, I decided it was time to go deeper into my studies. I enrolled in a 200 hour yoga teacher training through Holistic Yoga School in Fort Collins, Colorado. The depth of these studies allowed me to confront, process and begin to accept my grief and trauma.
Since becoming a yoga teacher, I have aimed my offerings to focus on working with those in need of a safe and sacred space. I seek to guide individuals whose focus is to overcome anxiety, depression and trauma. Through yoga, meditation, and coaching mentorship, my goal is to help my students bring balance to the physical, mental and emotional bodies.
I created Wanderlotus as a platform to share my teachings to the greater community. My goal is to touch the lives of others who are moving through grief and are hoping to find a safe outlet for their healing.
I invite you to come hold space with me.
Here in this space you are safe, you are whole, and you are enough.
Together, let us walk through the darkness and into the light.
The light in me honors the light in you.
