I am a yoga teacher, writer, and mother living in the beautiful box canyon of Telluride, Colorado. In 2018, I left a career as a professor of political theory at University of North Carolina to move out West with my family. I have been a writer, educator, consultant, and yoga instructor for fifteen years. My writing tends to focus on the intersection of politics, philosophy, and moral life, but I have written on subjects as diverse as gender equality in high tech, the upcoming 2020 elections, and the Golden era of Hollywood.
I teach the physical practice of yoga, as well as its history and philosophy. More recently, I have written and lectured as a cultural critic of many aspects of yoga in the West, but continue to practice and teach yoga as someone who lives within and struggles against the deep contradictions of yoga as a practice and way of life in the West.
My teaching engages the philosophical, spiritual, cognitive, meditative, physical, and musical aspects of yoga, all of which are central to my own daily practice.
It is my intention to integrate the principles and practices of yoga into all areas of my work and life, and to uplift others by way of teaching and living out those principles and practices in our shared messy, modern world. I hope some of what you find here is helpful on your own journey.
