Welcome, yogis!

I'm so pleased to be sharing this space with you all. Lionheart Yogi has been in the back of my mind and heart since the summer of 2019. It all began with a conversation about meaning making I was having with my therapist. My son, Leo, had been born prematurely the previous April, and left this Earth on May 3rd, 2019. I've done so much grieving and processing of the loss, all the while wondering how to make meaning of the experience I had. His life was short lived, and made an incredible impact on my life and the lives of those closest to me.


An important piece of the grief process for me is sharing his story. My husband and I both feel it's one of the best ways to honor him. Another reason I love to share his story is with the hopes that it can bring awareness to the realities of the darker side of pregnancy and childbirth, loss. Our society as a whole is uncomfortable with discussing the idea that babies do indeed die. As a mom who experienced a tragic loss, I want to be there for other moms. Nobody should go through that journey alone.


As time has gone on, I've realized how we all have experienced loss and grief of some kind or another in our lives. And if you haven't yet, you will. My home studio is HotHouse Yoga, a place where community is of the utmost importance. My hope is to create a community where people can be vulnerable, share their grief, share their joy, make connections with themselves and others that they might not have otherwise.


That's not to say Lionheart Yogi is a heavy space. I love a rocking playlist and a breathtaking, fast paced Vinyasa flow. You'll find a balance of both restoration and invigoration here. Welcome, and thank you for being here with me.
