Bonnie began her yoga journey in 2005 volunteering for a yoga studio in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Originally a Massachusetts native, she found great solace through her new yoga practice and its community.
As she continued her travels around the country, she gained more and more support from fellow yogis and yoga teachers. Upon returning to Massachusetts, she was eager to deepen her knowledge of the practice and cultivate a more mindful life. In 2010, Bonnie completed a RYT200 Teacher Training and began teaching yoga.
In her classes, Bonnie offers a posture flow that both challenges and safely opens the body. By incorporating props and modifications, she is able to accommodate a range of abilities, and create a welcoming environment for yogis of all levels. Her students are guided to focus attention inwardly and let go of personal ego, allowing students to experience yoga on a deeply internal level.
Bonnie is experienced in Ashtanga, Chair, and Restorative Yoga. She has taught at a variety of different locations including Mama Nirvana’s New Yoga, Bay Path University, Florence Yoga, and The Town Bike Spinning Studio. She enjoys the ancient practice of Kirtan and has completed numerous workshops at Kirpalu. Bonnie strives towards a deeper understanding of the practice, constantly working to further her education and training, incorporating new and innovative concepts in her classes.
Outside of the studio, Bonnie is an avid reader and enjoys writing poetry. She volunteers at the Humane Association and lives with her fiancé and Dog in Nashville, TN. She is a grant writer for a local non-profit that helps eradicate and treat pediatric diseases and disabilities for children of the Nashville area.
