I stumbled into my first yoga class almost by accident and came away with a practice that continues to bring clarity, depth, and strength to my everyday experience. My personal journey on the path of yoga began in 1999, and like any intimate relationship continues to deepen, and reveal ever more subtle layers of beauty and wonder with each passing day. I practice because the rhythm of this daily ritual grounds me in truth, opens me to possibility, and challenges me to live more fully. I teach because I have seen that yoga can offer these gifts to anyone, no matter where they are starting from. My classes reflect the teachings I have received in my years as a student of the Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Anusara traditions, spoken through the lens of my own personal life experience. My own teachings are infused with the things that inspire me most, namely the wisdom and intelligence of nature, the power of sadhana, the strength of the human heart, and the awesome potential of an awakened mind.
