After undergoing two major surgeries, yoga helped bring me back on my feet (mentally and physically!) and back to myself. This path helped me find the origins of love within and reconnect with the happiness inside.
I have practiced yoga for over 10 years, but spending 6 months in India studying lead to huge growth and transformation. I was an assistant to the 'Iyengar method' teacher of a 200 hour yoga training in Rishikesh, India and one of the most important things I took from the experience was a quote from him: "Teach yoga as an offering"... Teaching yoga is an opportunity to give back. It is an opportunity for me to share all the amazing gifts I have learned along this journey.
I offer students a fun and safe environment to explore, expand, express, and release. I am dedicated to cultivate yoga as a tool for students to empower their journey inwards and embrace the present moment. With breath-based movement, my classes are taught to provoke mental and physical challenges to enable students to reach a blissful integrated awareness, acceptance, and ability. My light-hearted yet fiery vinyasa class encourages students to leave their comfort zone and develop flexibility, core stability, and strength while maintaining a playful mindset. An engaging and sweaty practice building up throughout the class ends in a re-nourishing and gentle cool down. Instruction includes close attention to proper alignment with props and also appropriate hands-on adjustments, deepening the pose in order to reach “ah-ha” moments.
I know my students will leave class a bit more refreshed, re-energized, stronger! My hopes are for each student to leave the mat with this self-empowerment, and to spread a bit more loving kindness making this world a better and more conscious place! Namaste.
