Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world.
Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
— Rumi

my mission

To cultivate tools with a bunch of awesome people as together we expand, explore, experiment, express, exchange, exhale, enchant, electrify and enjoy our lives.

My mission is to whole-heartedly ride the waves of life, in gratitude, and to manifest my dreams alongside others who are doing the same.

The name Yogardenshine is my way of saying let's use the tools of yoga to tend our spiritual gardens, where each one of us cultivates the best version of ourselves. That way we can shine our unique beautiful lights into the world.

about me

I live on Hatteras Island, NC with beautiful people and my dog, Cheetah. I have endless love for cooking, traveling, meditation, coffee and Mother Earth. My favorite words are magic, energy, adventure, heart, courageous, wild, gorgeous, heroic and strong.

my Approach

My approach is goal-driven and purpose-aligned. Together we'll create a practice designed for you by using your most heartfelt desires in life as a guide in addition to cultivating a calm & steady center from which to live and grow. Life is a journey of discovering what tools work for you, understanding how you best optimize, so that you can do more what you love and lights you up while hooking the world up at the same time.

I am awake to the electricity of life. The dynamic power of breath is renewing me moment by moment. Nature is wild and serene, and so am I.
