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!
