“Abby is an incredibly personable and thoughtful teacher. Her approach invites students to take in 'standard' material in an experience that is extremely personal to their own growth in the practice.”

I am delighted to meet you here! I am a yoga teacher, teacher trainer, and teacher mentor, based in Portland, OR. Grounded in trauma-informed service and adaptive movement practices, I am here to share my love for yoga as both an ancient and evolving discipline. Join me for private sessions, mentorships, workshops, or retreats!

I came to yoga through scoliosis.


I was 15, and I was angry with my body, frustrated with doctors, chiropractors, and back braces that were all unable to give me what I most wanted: a straight spine. In an attempt to try something - anything - new, my mom took me to an Iyengar yoga class series with Francois Raoult. I remember almost nothing from those classes, except that it felt pleasant to be there. Yoga did not correct my scoliosis, but it did feel good, and it did remind me that my body was worth loving and caring for...

"When I first started private sessions with Abby, it hurt to even lay on the floor, but Abby held space for me in my grief and met me where I was at. Our sessions helped me come back into my body and take care of myself."
