"I’m an empathetic person with a steady presence. I like a challenge, and I believe intuition is our best guidance. I’m warm and receptive. Pretty wacky, too."

Birthday: 4/24 - taurus

hometown: Fairfax, Virginia - Auburn university undergrad

Current Fav Yoga Pose: downward facing dog

Fav Spot in Athens: Sandy Creek Park & The Botanical Gardens

the top 3: Cook, read sci-fi/fantasy novels, go on long walks

Yoga Music style: laid back, ambient, and zen. That doesn't mean sleepy, though! I like the energy to be big. If you're coming to my Shakti Strength class, be prepared for some electronic remixes of your favs.

Check out my "yogi fun" and "Anjali" playlists. You can find me on Spotify!

Training: I received my RYT-200 in alignment-based vinyasa yoga from Peach Friedman, ERYT-500, at Yogafly Studio in Auburn, Alabama in 2015. I also studied under noah mazé in the summer of 2018.

Why Athens: I've been in Athens since the fall of 2017 when I started grad school! I'm working towards my M.S. and completing my dietetic internship so that I can become a Registered Dietitian
