Yoga is about remembering we are already one with divinity and that we never left it.
— ROLF NAUJOKAT

I received my 200 hour certification from Kripalu Center for Yoga and Ayurveda in February of 2014.  I came to yoga a few years prior with the simple goal of increasing my strength and flexibility yet what I actually uncovered deeply transformed my life from the inside out. I had previously lived a life void of body awareness and finding a yoga practice became the missing piece that linked my physical body to my spirit; finally I felt at home in my skin. Over time, I learned to use my body as a vessel for self discovery and expression and this allowed me to harness my true power. The thought that I could facilitate such a monumental shift in others thrilled me and inspired the pursuit to become a teacher.  I still cannot imagine a greater joy than witnessing another being beginning to see their own light. 

When asked "What is yoga?", I answer simply, "An exploration." - what you take from your practice is up to you. Be it an exploration of movement, breath, the moment, release, tension, compassion or simply whatever comes up, I hope to lead an experience that is guided by self-love, deeper body-awareness and discovery. 

I guide introspective Vinyasa classes and private sessions aimed at letting go of resistance in the body and in the mind. I honor the body as a tool to cultivate awareness and connection and I look forward to moving through a practice with you!

Love is the only path, love is the only god, and love is the only scripture. Impress this verse upon your memory and chant it constantly if you want to realize your dreams of growth.
