What should students expect from your class?
I teach an alignment-based practice of movement and breath that is challenging yet accessible – a flow that is dynamic, strong and fluid. I also love the power that an amazing playlist can add to every class!
Physical Movement has always been where I’ve felt the most at home and free- a form of self-expression that helps me find truth and explore parts of myself otherwise hidden. When I started my yoga practice I realized the opportunity to connect even more deeply with the intimate wisdom of the physical body and the heart through stillness and through breath. I teach an alignment-based practice of movement and breath that is challenging yet accessible – a flow that is dynamic, strong and fluid with lots of opportunity to get rooted through the hands and play upside down. I believe growth comes from the willingness to challenge ourselves and experience things that take us outside of our comfort zone. Transformation occurs when we bravely step into the unknown and allow ourselves to be open, vulnerable and free. I am humbled and inspired everyday I get to teach, everyday I get to share space and watch courageous yogis go deep into themselves and realize their own amazing limitless potential. I have been teaching since 2006 and practicing for nearly 20 years. I am amazingly humbled by the limitless opportunity this practice and teaching provides.
Deepest gratitude to all the amazing people who have inspired me along the way. Special thanks to my teachers Ryan Leier, Dustin Fruson, Srivatsa Ramaswami, Mike Nichol, Suzanne Slocum-Gori, Christine Price Clark, Rachel Scott, Jasmina Egeler and Esak Garcia.
“I want to be brave enough to always try – even if I fail and fall – and to have the courage to rise again. My yoga practice provides a safe space where I can play in the unknown- where I can connect with what is real- here and now, and delve into that deeper part of myself that is true and ever steady.”
