I opened ecce yoga studio in 2008 in downtown Fargo, in a unique partnership with my brother and ecce art gallery. After holding space for ten years on Broadway, ecce yoga relocated to a beautiful new space in 2019. I’ve been practicing and studying yoga since 2002. I discovered yoga while living in Minneapolis, MN and continued studying after moving to Portland, OR, where I met my teacher Casey Palmer of Near East Yoga. I completed my 200 hour training in 2010 and have done additional trainings with De West (prenatal) and Judith Lasater (restorative) as well as Matthew Sweeney and Asha Wolf. I completed a doula (birth partner) training in 2014. Being a professional touring singer-songwriter for over 12 years, yoga in many ways helped to ground me and keep me well in body, mind, and spirit. It has been a constant in my life through joy, loss, grief and change. Sharing yoga with others, and helping to build a supportive sangha here in Fargo, has been a hugely satisfying part of my life. I feel blessed and honored to hold the space at ecce for others to do their practice. I am also very fortunate to be life partners with my love Derek and to be the mama to our beautiful little girl, Ruby Ann.
