After many years of various Hatha classes, I finally stumbled upon a traditional Ashtanga school while living in San Francisco. There, I began a daily practice with Clayton Horton at Greenpath Yoga. Here I found a teacher and program that suited me and with desire to go deeper I attended and graduated from Clayton's Teacher Training program in 2004. At this time, I became a part of his morning Mysore assistant program and soon after began teaching my own classes under Clayton's guidance. I also began making the pilgrimage to India where I have studied with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Saraswati and Sharath Jois.
I am grateful for the strength, discipline and clarity I have developed through practicing Ashtanga. I am grateful for all the beautiful friends and teachers I have been fortunate to know, especially Rolf and Marci Naujokat in Goa, India. In lineage of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Rolf is my teacher and inspiration on this path of Ashtanga.
I am also a student of Kriya Yoga.
