Flat Mat Yoga is closing on March 1, 2018. Until then, all programs are available at pay-what-you-can prices.
You need a yoga teacher who:
I’ve been told by countless people that they didn’t think they liked yoga until they took a class with me.
After I retired from Gotham Girls Roller Derby, yoga was the last thing I expected to find on the other side. I mean, I liked skating and hitting people, and yoga is boring in comparison…right?
After I found a class called Yoga Fight Club and started practicing regularly, I realized just how unbalanced roller derby had made my body. My left abdominal muscles were weaker than my right, my back was unhappy, my hips felt tight, and I had limited upper body strength. You might be able to relate to some of those things!
After I completed my yoga teacher training, I realized that I could help skaters like you and me to feel more balanced, stronger, and more flexible. I started Flat Mat Yoga in 2014, and since then have taught individual skaters, leagues, and at Northeast Derby Convention and RollerCon.
Flat Mat is growing beyond derby to rock climbing and running: my current physical activities. Though when I’m not doing those, you’ll still find me at local rinks and skate parks, or snuggling with my pitbull!

I teach adventurous, mindful, and unpretentious yoga. I firmly believe that anyone can do yoga; you don’t need to be super strong or impossibly flexible.
When you take one of my classes, expect to play with your edge, whether that’s trying new poses or slowing waaaaaaay down. Get ready to pay attention to your breath, how you use your hands and feet, and how you align your body. Be open to learning something new about how your body moves that you might not have known before.
And most importantly, know that you don’t have to look a certain way, wear the “right clothes”, or do anything that makes you physically or emotionally uncomfortable.
All you need to do is show up and be willing to explore.
Flat Mat Yoga is going out of business on February 28, 2018. You can purchase all Flat Mat programs at pay-what-you-can rates through that date, and then they’ll be gone forever!
Want my expert eye, sense of humor, and the chill atmosphere of working with me in person? You can hire me for individual coaching or group classes.
Whether you’re recovering from an injury, would like a yoga sequence designed just for you, or want some personalized tips on how to adapt postures for your body, I’ve got some 1-on-1 options for you.
Does your league needs cross-training to improve both strength and flexibility, or maybe just a good stretch because no one wants to lead it at the end of practice? I offer weekend workshop options of either my signature classes, or something customized for your team.
Want to offer yoga at your convention or clinic? I teach annually at RollerCon and the Northeast Derby Convention, and I’d love to teach at your event, too.
