I have studied various modalities of health and wellness extensively for over 30 years and practiced most styles of yoga consistently for the past 22 years. As a young runner in the 80's, I was fortunate to have trained with legendary coaches Jeff Leavey and Marshall Sellers. Their training programs and life lessons set my feet on the path and sparked my life-long passion for vibrant health. Yoga has positively impacted my life to such a degree I felt a strong calling to become a teacher and help others. My teaching journey began in 2010 after I lost both parents and my sister to common conditions like cancer, heart disease, addiction and dementia. I set aside my career as a marketing executive at Hilti Inc., to focus on family, community, health and wellness. Since 2012 I have been teaching yoga professionally at various locations in south Orange County, California. After 10 years and over 3,000 classes, I am more inspired than ever to be sharing the simple and effective solutions yoga has to offer for the devastating and sometimes avoidable conditions that plague us. I believe stress is at the root of the problem. I have learned that connecting with a community (sangha), nature, your true Self and your divine purpose are the keys to liberation from suffering. I am an agent of love and I live to serve. I have three teenage children with my husband Josh and they are my world. I adore my students and will do all I can to help them find peace, joy and great health.
