Yoga has given me new life. It is my intention to share this effervescent vitality and peace from a place of sincerity and deep devotion. I am a former professional modern dancer who performed and traveled internationally with Ailey II. Currently, I am a professor of Anthropology and African American Studies at Yale University. Both a dancer’s and an anthropologist’s sensibility inform how I approach holding space as I aim to bring everything I love to my classes— the joy of fluid and expansive movement, the gift of breathing and moving in community, respect for our glorious diversity, and the lightness that comes from allowing play and humor to support rather than distract from the practice. I received my 200 hr training from Yogamaya New York and my 500 hr training from the Tantric Alchemy Institute. I am also a certified STOTT Pilates trainer in advanced mat work. My classes are often described as rhythmic and buoyant, and my teaching is rooted in a commitment to experimenting with the abundant possibilities within our material bodies to move from soul and be guided by spirit.
