I first fell in love with the practice of yoga in 2004. In my first class, I experienced a sense of peace and harmony I had not thought possible. I was hooked. The practice not only calmed my mind and soothed my body, but my life was changing. I began to learn that my outer world was my own creation, and a reflection of my inner world. In January 2011, I completed my YTT in Maharashtra, India, and continue to learn and grow as a student and teacher every day. I enjoy and draw inspiration from many traditions and styles of yoga. My classes involve intuitive and creative sequencing, with the purpose of deep exploration and embodiment. I aspire to create a nurturing space to support the flow of energy, and cultivate harmony in the mind and body. I am humbled and honored to be of service in what is my true passion and purpose. I look forward to seeing you on the mat.
