I have been a practitioner of yoga for over 11 years. Through years of personal practice and the invaluable guidance and gentle support my teachers have given me, I have developed a profound connection with the practice of yoga and enjoy sharing my devotion to the practice with others. With a background in Ashtanga Yoga, and influences from Anusara and Iyengar Yoga, I strive to create inspiring classes that focus on the principles of alignment, creating a safe, injury-free practice. I also utilize the asana practice as a way to develop a sensibility of becoming more present in our everyday lives. I find yoga to be a great metaphor for life, challenging us to be engaged yet relaxed on life's path. I am also grateful for the yoga community and my students who continually inspire me to learn more.
