Studio Owner & Instructor
When creating Bryony & Birch, I dreamt of a home for our yoga, fitness and wellness classes. I am so excited to now have that home located in beautiful Exeter NH. When I am not behind the chair styling hair in our Hair loft in Amesbury MA, you will find me In Bryony Body helping run the studio and getting to know the members of this wonderful community.
