Pike Yoga

ATTITUDE • MATITUDE • GRATITUDE

At Pike Yoga, we believe that EVERYONE needs yoga. Yoga is the one practice that complements all other exercise programs. Whether practiced daily or once a week, yoga will produce considerable benefits.

Our philosophy, "Attitude. Matitude. Gratitude." comes from our practice of yoga. 

Most of us come to class with some form of an attitude, and not necessarily in the negative sense. Our attitudes can arise from frustration, guilt, anger, fatigue, loneliness, excitement, urgency, contentment, or any number of other feelings. So then, we come to the mat and practice; we begin to work through these outside distractions. 

Yes, it's a made up word. Matitude is simply being present--there on the mat--with the breath, the mind, and the body. Matitude is dynamic--always changing, always evolving. It is the practice of being who it is that you are supposed to be. 

The final component is gratitude. This is where the intention of your practice is absorbed. It is finding light in darkness, quietness in chaos--simply being thankful.

Is Personal Training For You?

Bored with your current workout?

Did you have an injury and you're ready to get back to exercising?

Do you have equipment at your home that's covered in dust and cobwebs?

Do you need to be challenged?


How often can I train?

Clients often train 1 to 3 times a week or can come in for a one-time visit for an individualized program. 


One-on-one training is great but can I bring my friends and train as a group?

Fitness is my first love. I have been encouraging physical fitness to ALL ages and for ALL levels for over 30 years. The Pike Yoga-Personal Training philosophy is "any amount of exercise is better than none at all." At Pike Yoga, we encourage each client to begin where they are, helping them to set goals to reach their own optimum level of fitness. Pike Yoga has had great success helping clients realize that they can get the results they want by doing a variety of exercises and not the same routine every time. When clients combine a varied routine with 3-5 personal life style modifications, they are more balanced, more healthy and more mind/body fit.

I first fell in love with fitness as a young athlete in middle school and high school. I knew I had to figure out how to continue all this “fun” activity that people called exercise for the rest of my life. I grew up in Louisiana and would come to Memphis a couple times a year to visit family. On these trips, I started shadowing my cousin who was a personal trainer. Flash forward, after college and grad school, I completed a Graduate Internship at Pike Yoga in Personal Training under Wendy Holmes(previously mentioned cousin). I spent a year away in Chicago as a Personal Trainer, but now I am back in Memphis working where it all began. Areas of specialization include: Weight Loss, Weight Management, and mostly “Post Rehabilitation” (Post Injury/Surgery Rehab or Chronic Pain/Health Conditions). 

Education: B.S. in Kinesiology from Louisiana Tech University, M.S. in Kinesiology from Louisiana Tech University
