Since 2011 I have travelled to India (the source of Yoga) three times to receive formal training + certificates in Hatha and Vinyasa yoga. Over the years I have been greatly influenced by the western approach of thoughtful, varied, creative sequencing and intelligently building towards ‘peak’ or more challenging poses in class.
I have a passion for ’holding space’ for others to unwind both mentally and physically by guiding yoga like a moving meditation. My classes have been called a ‘dreamy experience’ with the use of poignant instruction, philosophical themes, breath-oriented movement, seamless transitions, pose-enhancing hands on adjustments, and ambient musical soundscapes. I make the practice accessible yet challenging to all levels and prioritize functional movement over fancy ‘pretzel’ poses so all bodies can feel empowered.
My teachers include:
My style blends the essence of the spiritual tradition with a continual re-definition of the physical postures informed by modern day discoveries in human biomechanics. I have been inspired by teachers such as Jules Mitchell and Schuyler Grant.
I am a practicing Reiki therapist and daily meditation practitioner with Vipassana training. My greatest inspiration and salve for my soul has always been the lessons and blessings of mother Nature.
