    I know what it’s like to long for connection in the yoga world.  I spent 10 years of my yoga journey practicing yoga in studios without really connecting to anyone around me.

    As a natural introvert, I just didn’t know how to connect to people within the constraints of a regular studio class.  I still find myself saying awkward things to my teachers or other students in the 5-minute span of time before or after all the yoga goodness takes place.

    While my practice was invaluable in helping me connect to my Self for years, I still longed for a community to belong to that crossed studios lines and that I could turn to for suggestions, advice, and conversation while on my yoga journey.

    Dirty South Yoga was my offering to the Atlanta yoga community.  A place to celebrate, connect and grow together.

    A little about me: I am an Atlanta native, traveler, yoga instructor and make it happen-er.  I enjoy stretchy heart-opening backbends, bare-feet, and other people’s cooking.

    I have a ridiculously high number of yoga-crushes in Atlanta (and across the world) at any given moment. Upon moving back to Atlanta in 2013 and completing teacher training, I’ve fallen in awe of the great things happening in this city and across the south.

    Yoga has been a huge influence on me and I love to watch others fall in like with the practice.  I’ve experienced some of my most profound moments of truth and honesty on the mat and I truly believe if we all can access our own truth it will lead to tangible transformation.

    Dirty South Yoga is a movement to transform individuals, communities and even myself through the practice of yoga.

    I’m also a believer in dreaming big, risking failure and living boldly.  I hope ya’ll will join the adventure.
