Working in various public health settings for over 20 years has provided me with firsthand knowledge of the disproportionate number of Black and Brown women impacted by most chronic health conditions including, but not limited to, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. My vision is to instill the importance of rest and restoration for BIPOC women to:
Heal, not just to survive; but, to thrive
Participate actively in self and soul care
Transform and elevate their own physical and emotional health through intentional movement
Experience the benefits and healing of yoga and meditation
Owner/Certified Yoga Teacher
Born and raised in Decatur, GA, my educational background includes a BA in Psychology, Master and PhD in Social Work and Master in Public Health. As a Lead Health Scientist, I work to address inequities in chronic disease prevention and management. My yoga journey began in 2007, while in graduate school, looking for an alternative workout outside of the traditional gym. Over time, I became more connected with my breath and the movement, recognizing the positive impact of yoga on my mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health. To further deepen my practice, I completed the 200 hour yoga teacher training at Sacred Thread Atlanta in July 2021. I am also a Trauma-Informed Sensual Yoga Teacher, which I completed training in August 2023. My goal is to create and provide a space for health and wellness that is inclusive and safe, where Black and Brown women (BIPOC) can practice being intentional about self-care, and work toward a more balanced, holistic lifestyle.
