I started teaching yoga in 2007. During my first teacher training I fell in love with the experience and knew it was a fit on a very deep level. After having many trainings with gifted teachers I still yearned for the answer to "Why Yoga?" I wanted to know more about this ancient practice and how it was having a life changing affect on me. In 2011 I found a book titled The Fire of Love written by my current teacher Aadil Palkhivala. The book is now my handbook and it contains a map to creating and leading a better life through the practices of Love, Truth, Integrity and Sincerity to name a few. One year later in 2012, I was enrolled in his 200-hour teacher training at The College of Purna Yoga which Aadil co-founded with Savitri, creator of Heartfull™ Meditation. The training left me wanting more. Afterwards, I needed to move to Saudi Arabia for three years to support my husband in his career. While there I had the honor to teach yoga to my fellow ex-patriots and offered several private sessions to Saudi women. Living there was an experience that only my yoga practice could prepare me for. My goal at the end of the time there was to study again at the College and receive my 500-hour certification which I completed in 2015. Not only did my asana (posture) practice deepen but so did my practice of Hearfull™ Meditation which is a transformative meditation practice based on living from a place of love. In July of 2016 I began my 2000-hour training which is the only one of its kind to be held in this country.
I loves practicing and teaching. It has become a way of life for me. The more I learn, the more I am transformed by the practice. With the understanding of how I show up in the world I have the opportunity to change my own life and also offer help to those around me including my students. Yoga teaching gives me the vehicle to share what I has learned from my life experiences. I hope to empower students to improve and influence their own life through a journey of self-discovery and healing and realize their highest potential. Transformation not only happens on the mat but in the everyday experiences that we all share.
