I first truly discovered yoga in 2008 when I attended college up in San Francisco. I took the free yoga classes on campus a few times a week. Several years after I connected with yoga I decided to explore different styles and attended a Sivananda Center, which allowed me to deepen the spiritual aspect of my practice. When I first started yoga I was looking for a way to stay active. I later realized the importance of being still and that yoga offered so much more than physical benefits. Meditation and connecting the mind, body, and spirit became very important to my practice.

Having traveled a good amount and practicing yoga in different parts of the world with many different people has made me realize how yoga is a universal language and is a sacred practice. This has been an inspiration for teaching and helping to create a community of exploration.

Favorite Yoga Move: 

I have two! Half pigeon,...really any hip opener. And Fish pose because I also love the vulnerability and power of a good heart opener.

How Has Yoga Benefited You The Most: 

Yoga has allowed me to explore and grow as a person. It has also been a spiritual outlet for me.

Reason Started Doing Yoga: 

I grew up active, playing soccer, dancing, and cheering. When I went to college, I was searching for a way to continue being active. I guess you could say I was called to yoga :)
