I have spent much of my life nurturing my intellectual and rational sides - completing a law degree and becoming a practicing attorney. Avoiding the emotional and spiritual sides of life seemed like a safe path. My brand of feminism involved out-thinking and out-competing the men. I discovered Qoya shortly after giving birth to my daughter, and everything changed. I started a journey (which I am still on) to love, trust, and honor my body, heart, and soul, and to listen to my inner voice. The inner voice had always been there - I had made many major life decisions "based on my gut." But through Qoya I embraced the power of truly feeling what is present in my body and welcoming my body's wisdom.

If Qoya speaks to you, I would be honored to hold space for you on your own journey. Together, we move to remember our essence is wise, wild, and free!

I am currently teaching on Thursdays at 5:45 PM at Okra Yoga, 1912 Commonwealth Ave, Charlotte, NC. Register at www.okracharlotte.com/yoga/

When did you take your first Qoya class? June 2016 with Lyndsey Love Azlynne!

What does it mean for you to teach Qoya? For me, teaching Qoya allows me to share an amazing gift with others. Through Qoya, if I can help one woman to breathe a little more deeply throughout her day, to notice and trust that feeling in her gut, or to keep her body moving through a difficult transition, that is enough.

What is your favorite song to dance to right now? "Alaska” by Maggie Rogers

What book has inspired you on the path to embodying the feminine? Autobiography of an Orgasm by Betsy Blankenbaker

What would you tell someone who is thinking of taking a Qoya class for the first time? If you are thinking about it, do it! You are so fortunate that Qoya has found you. Try it with an open mind and open heart.
