"Moderation and mindfulness are very important to me – I believe that integrating yoga and meditation into your daily wellness habits helps to cultivate a holistic foundation for a happy and balanced life.
I stepped into my first yoga class in 2005 and my passion for the practice of asana and meditation has since grown into a lifestyle. Ever since starting a regular yoga practice, I have found it easier to stay present, laugh (a lot) and enjoy beauty in the world around me. I believe yoga and meditation is a journey that is very personal to the practicing individual. We all have different bodies and emotions and what might feel amazing to one student can cause discomfort for another. I encourage my students to listen to the guidance of their intuition and practice for the bodies they have in this moment.
Life can get pretty serious but the time we spend in our practice doesn’t have to be. I bring a light-hearted sense of playfulness and ease to my teachings, providing a space for my students to face physically challenging asanas with an adventurous spirit but also encouraging them to know when it’s time for their bodies to rest. In my classes, I emphasize the idea that practice makes progress, not perfect. Yoga isn’t just about crazy inversions and burning an incredible amount of calories; and meditation isn’t about making the mind completely still and free from thought – these practices are about what you can learn during challenging times and what you take with you when you step off of the mat and return to your daily life.
I take a holistic approach to teaching yoga, focusing on creative, intelligent sequencing while integrating pranayama, meditation, intention setting and inspiring themes. I specialize in teaching a physically challenging Vinyasa Flow, in addition to nourishing Meditation, Sound Bath, Yoga Nidra, Restorative & Yin Yoga practices. I have taught at many prominent companies in Los Angeles, I teach private and studio classes and I lead international yoga teacher trainings and yoga & meditation retreats. My purpose, as a teacher, is to guide my students through safe and fun classes with the intention of cultivating peace, happiness and balance. We all have a beautiful light within us – I strive to share my light with the world and encourage others to do the same. Namaste."
