Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher
Certified RealRyder Instructor
While attending a conference in Boston, I discovered both Baptiste Yoga and RealRyder bikes. I attended a Baptiste yoga class and was blown away by the physicality and the spirituality of the practice. At the same conference I took a RealRyder class, and loved the added challenge of a bike that moves. I knew immediately, I wanted to bring both this style of yoga and cycling to my clients.
I am humbled and excited to be able to share these two very powerful practices with you!
