Coming from a martial arts background, I was always very active. I started doing yoga at 16, being initially intrigued by a scorpion pose I saw in one of my dad’s books as a kid. I began getting serious about my practice at 22 in San Francisco, attending donation based classes hosted by Yoga to the People but it was still very much asana based.
I graduated my yoga teacher training at The Yoga Joint in October 2017 where I put my body through one of the greatest physical challenges I have ever had but it was well worth it. I was blessed to have the smallest class which allowed us to have an abundance of one-on-one attention.
My commitment is to generate a community of dedicated yogis looking to physically challenge their bodies but also build social connections to help us through our lowest moments. I have always felt that when you find beauty in life you need to share it with others.
As a yoga teacher, I hope to help people learn to be comfortable in their own skin and show compassion to themselves . We live in a society of disconnectedness and we are constantly reminded we are not enough or we don’t have enough.
Comparison is the thief of joy, and I encourage my students to find joy in every little thing they can.
