Yoga Therapist, E-RYT 500 x 2, International Association of Yoga Therapists, YTRx
Hey there, I've been teaching Yoga as a path of self-inquiry and optimal physical, emotional, and spiritual health to diverse populations for nearly a decade. Above all, I’m a student and hope to learn something from you one day.
In 2011, I was initiated into the Sri Vidya Lineage of the Himalayan Masters and this is the well from which my teachings flows.
Currently, I’m working toward my 1000-hour Certified Yoga Therapist license at Loyola Marymount University which includes formal supervised training by experts in both the medical and holistic wellness fields. This prestigious and rigorous program includes in depth training in anatomy, physiology, psychology, Ayurveda, mindfulness-based stress reduction, clinical research, mental wellness (depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc), biomechanics, neurology, and many other areas.
I received my 200 & 500-hour certifications through the Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy. I received my degree in Psychology, with honors, in 2009 and have also studied Ayurveda and Yoga in India. I share my time between Ojai, CA and India; both are home.
I’m hired by a wide variety of individuals, organizations, and corporations to lead classes, workshops, and retreats. I’ve taught in a variety of clinical, professional, and educational settings as well as in advanced Yoga teacher trainings, since 2011. My approach blends yoga, mindfulness, guided relaxation, meditation, and self-inquiry as a holistic approach to meeting life with an open mind and compassionate heart.
I intend for sessions to feel grounded, practical, and accessible, while also being enlightening and uplifting. I teach Yoga as a systematic and intuitive approach to life. Let’s discover together how to transfer the skills and wisdom of Yoga into your daily life. Let’s invite the seed of Yoga to come through, sprout, and be a force of powerful change inside you.
