I am a 200 RYT certified instructor with training in Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin yoga. My yoga journey started in the summer of 2007. Having just graduated from university, becoming engaged, and moving to out-of-state, I found life hectic and overwhelming. Yoga became my antidote for anxiety, and a tool to regroup from life altering events. Upon relocating to the Bay Area four years ago, I began studies with Joanie Cartal. She introduced me to Yin yoga and helped me develop my practice, my passion, and realize my desire to teach. My studies began under John Berg, Aniruhd Shastri, and Ben Thomas, through whom I began to cultivate my voice and received my 200 hr RYT certification. Additionally, I studied and trained in Yin Yoga training with Joanie Cartal and Misako Matsuoka. My philosophy centers on an alignment based flow, focusing on safety and owning your own practice.
