I discovered the practices of Yoga when I was studying for a degree in Plant Science, while fascinated to be learning about the works and wonders of life and the world around us, I felt a lack of human connection and compassion in the path I chose.
After I took my first Yoga class I knew these practices would be a lifelong companion. Yoga awakened a deep yearning inside to not only understand life but to participate in it fully with deep presence, awareness, openness and compassion.
I received my 200hr certification in 2011 at The Laughing Lotus Yoga School in San Francisco.
I completed my advanced studies and received my 500hr certification at Yoga Tree SF and specialized in Yoga Therapeutics in 2014.
I bow with deep gratitude to my teachers: Judith Hanson Lasater, Mark Whitwell, Keith Borden, Jasmine Tarkeshi, Darren Main, Jason Crandell, Harvey Deutch, Ram Areuveni, Revital Dahan, Nir Raz, and more!
I believe that Yoga truly is for everyone. I love a simple and deep practice and aim to plant the seed of self-care, self-love and deep self-inquiry in my students hearts. May we chuckle together at how human we all are.
Styles I teach
THERAPEUTIC YOGA – A slow paced practice, with a focus on healthy mobility, mindful movement, alignment and breath in a safe supportive environment.
RESTORATIVE YOGA - Simply slowing down. A supported practice for balancing the nervous system and restoring the body, mind, and spirit. Postures are held for longer periods of time, using props (blankets, blocks, and straps) for coziness, support, health and relaxation.
POWER YOGA - Classic Yoga poses with an emphasis on strengthening, breath work, mindful movement and deep compassion.
CORPORATE YOGA - Yoga can support the well being of your employees and enhance their ability to focus with steadiness and ease.
