I started practicing yoga in 1998. This was way before yoga was cool, there weren’t special $108 pants or anything and I had to order my mat and my first yoga VHS tape out of a hippie catalog over the phone #truestory. After years of telling everyone who would sit still long enough how amazing yoga is (have you tried it? you gotta try it! it’s SO GREAT!), I decided to pursue teacher training and have accumulated over 1200 hours of advanced studies most recently with my primary teachers Gioconda Parker and Christina Sell.
As a teacher, I strive to help people of all shapes, sizes, and abilities by creating a joyful and safe atmosphere, offering options for all levels, and a supportive environment to all students. I love vinyasa flow, a practice that’s light-hearted and challenging, and the steady strength of alignment-based yoga, so that’s how I teach. While leading fun, high-energy classes, I strike a balance between flowing movement and strong posture alignment. I teach because I hope to share the peace and balance that I’ve found through my personal practice with as many people as I can.
