About me

I support women through their pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum recovery by teaching prenatal and postpartum yoga, well care workshops, and by offering birth support.

As a young girl growing up in NM I found that riding horses gave me a sense of calm that I later found on my yoga mat. I began practicing yoga in 2000, since my daughter was born in 1998, I had not yet discovered how yoga would enhance my pregnancy. With my son’s birth in 2003 I could tell the benefits of yoga as my pregnancy progressed. At this point I knew I wanted to share my experience with other women. This is why I’ve dedicated myself to teaching prenatal & postpartum yoga, lead well care workshops, & offer birth support. I love helping mothers connect with their babies through yoga and watching babies & children respond to its soothing calm and peacefulness. I’ve finally found my passion in assisting women through the full spectrum of well care from pregnancy to recovery in the postpartum period.

How I work with parents

I work with families from pregnancy through their child's first few years. I offer yoga throughout their pregnancy , for partner support during the birthing process and postpartum for the mother to bond with her baby and rejuvenate herself as a new mother.
Through the prenatal yoga practice you will find the strength and confidence within you in order to prepare yourself for labor and new motherhood. My yoga classes and support groups will also provide a community of women with whom you are able to discuss the challenges you are facing as your body transitions into each stage of pregnancy and postpartum period. I also emphasize to make self care a priority in your routine so that you can be the best mom to your little one.
