ABOUT MY PRACTICE
A Life of Harmony and Abundance
I'm a tea-drinking, dessert-loving, world-travelling yogi! I'm known for my passion, unique approach, and inspirational teaching style that embodies physical, spiritual, and mental strength. With over 18 years experience, I make yoga accessible for every BODY.
I didn’t start out as a professional yoga teacher. For years, I attended yoga and other fitness sessions around my full time work schedule and spent my off-days studying the literature. Most of the yoga classes I attended catered to people who were already fit and flexible, and at the time they were what I wanted.
Over time, however, I started looking for a practice that encompassed a more holistic approach to what my body and mind needed. Through mindfulness I developed a lifestyle and practice that worked for me, and I have been fortunate enough to be able to share this practice with others. I believe that life should be lived with joy, gratitude, and a dedication to being present in the moment. These feelings inform and guide my teaching, which is focused on helping my students better connect to themselves and their communities.
