In the fall of 2012, I completed my 200 hour teacher training with Irum Naqvi at the Center for Natural Living at Rancho Margot in Costa Rica. It was through that experience that I started to shift my attention from the more physical aspects of yoga to the internal – the emotional, spiritual and even interpersonal ways that we can embody the practice of yoga. In the summer of 2013, I began teaching for CorePower yoga and helped to open their first studios in the Boston area. Teaching at CorePower has taught me to bring clarity and accessibility to my teaching. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead 200 hour teacher trainings at CorePower – to help students find their voice and to witness the transformation of student to teacher. I am humbled and inspired by how much there is to learn about this practice and welcome the opportunity to always be a student. I am currently in my 500 hour yoga teacher training with Ame Wren and Kevin Courtney at the Boston Yoga School.
In my teaching, I strive to deliver classes that are challenging but accessible to all bodies and all people no matter where they are on their journey of yoga. In my vinyasa practice and teaching, I integrate intentional sequencing, creative transitions, and carefully crafted playlists to take students out of their heads and into their bodies. I make an effort to teach with clear, concise cues and support students with many hands on assists that encourage safety, proper alignment and more depth in a given pose. I truly believe I have the greatest job there is. I try to infuse that sense of gratitude and joy into every class I teach.
