About The Layered Life
Over here at The Layered Life we have been deep into our yoga practice for quite a few years now. It's only been this past year that we have discovered the incredible new journeys, the places you can take your mind, body, and soul, when you immerse yourself in a yoga retreat experience!
Our aim is to provide you with retreat opportunities that can not only expand your practice but truly allow you to open up all the layers of your being, to find your truest self. We all struggle with balance, The Layered Life has set out to create journeys that will care for each of your 'layers' (mind, body, spirit, love, family, soul) and allow you to find a more peaceful state of being, The 'blissful state of being' as they say in The Koshas. We hope you will find the perfect adventure to join us!
Bringing YOU the best Teachers and Leaders

My personal journey on the path of yoga began in 1999, and like any intimate relationship it continues to reveal ever more subtle layers of beauty and wonder with each passing day. I began sharing my passion for practice with others in 2002, and my classes reflect the teachings I have received in my years as a student of the Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Anusara traditions. You will find my offerings are infused with the things that inspire me most, namely the wisdom and intelligence of nature, my delight in myth & story, and the power of practice to awaken the mind & heart.

As a mother of two, wife of one, employee, sister, daughter, niece, and friend I often found myself pulled in so many directions. Struggling to create balance within all my relationships, my work, and my life my yoga practice has been essential! Going on retreat has allowed me to delve so deeply in to each of the layers that tug at my soul on a daily basis. I found focus, clarity, joy; a reenergizing of my entire being that I could carry with me long after I returned home from the journey. It's a journey I hope to share with many others and we are working on creating some incredible experiences with our upcoming retreats.
