I attended my first yoga class in 2003 and something in me shifted. After years of trying different asana styles while living a toxic urban lifestyle, I made a choice in 2012 and began a disciplined Vinyasa practice. During the next several months, my entire being radically changed as I soon discovered that yoga was well beyond a physical practice. After releasing a 15 year alcohol addiction, shedding self-loathing and limiting beliefs, I was ready to live a life with purpose. With a yearning to learn more about my truth, I sold everything, quit my job, and left the United States to embark upon a spiritual journey throughout Southeast Asia that lasted over 5 years.
Within this time, I received a 200-hr Hatha yoga certification from Wise Living Yoga Academy in Thailand, 100-hr Yin yoga certification from Shanti Atma Yoga on Bali, and Reiki Level 2 certification from Marina Yoga in Thailand. I had the opportunity to learn from various teachers and hold space for students from around the world in Sri Lanka, Indonesia, India, Thailand, Spain, China, and United States.
Returning to the US in 2018, the challenging transition from teaching in the East to the West only rooted me more deeply in my truth as a student and teacher. and I'm humbled to share my authentic, from-the heart teaching. A blend of spiritual and practical teachings safely invites you to dive into deeper layers of your being. In my classes, you’ll be met where you’re at through mindful sequences focused on breath and adapted for specific needs.
Following the path of yoga continues to inform my life and teaching. I'm grateful to share the endless gifts of this wisdom and honored to witness your growth and transformation.
