I began my yoga practice in Chicago in 1999. I was blessed to have the opportunity to practice with some very inspirational local instructors that sparked me to make a life change. I became certified through YogaFit and obtained a Pilates mat certification through Movement Education. I also have a Radiant Child Certification through Shakta Kaur Kalsa. I have practiced through workshops with a multitude of masters such as Pattabhi Jois, David Life, Sharon Gannon, Baron Baptiste, Rodney Yee, Ana Forrest, Tommy Rosen, Alanna Kaivalya, Doug and David Swenson, John Friend, Cyndi Lee, Shiva Rea, Simon Park, Seane Corn, Scott Blossom, Tias Little, Tiffany Crukshank, MC Yogi, Amanda Giacomini, Janet Stone, Rusty Wells, and Beryl Bender Birch. I have found my practice and teaching to be influenced by Denver local greats, Denise Cook, Angelique DeSilva, Mike Matsamura, Richii Jai, Shannon Paige, and Indigo Stray. I received a multi-disciplinary Yoga Alliance Certification through Inner Connections Yoga and Whole Life Center in 2003. I am a 200 HR E-YRT and assisted in the 200HR teacher training offered by Bhogah Yoga in 2010. I completed Yoga Gangster Certification 2013 to volunteer to work with youth at risk It my sincere hope to share the gifts and blessings that yoga is sure to bring by helping to guide and remove the obstacles that prevent us from seeing our interconnectedness and highest Self.
