Alignment and perseverance have long been guiding themes for me. I have always been methodical and detail-oriented, and my tenacity to get work done could at times push me to the edge. When I suffered a repetitive stress injury that eventually led to chronic pain, I realized that my yoga practice was the inner work component I needed to progress my physical and mental healing. Yoga became a catalyst for change and served as guide to realign my life.
I pursued a new path in teaching yoga and overcame barriers that were preventing personal breakthrough. I now use my experience in teaching others to explore their practice in ways that work for them. I offer my students the yogic tools to learn about their bodies, how to heal and evolve with change, and to understand that yoga is an ongoing process. My purpose is to teach others to align with their inner strength, persevere on their own path and help them meet their needs and goals while finding ease in their body.
I’m a 500E-RYT and Level 1 Yoga Therapist, I’ve logged over 6,000 teaching and training hours Hatha and Vinyasa Alignment Yoga, Yoga Therapy, PT-based Yoga Therapeutics, Meditation, Yoga Philosophy and Prenatal Yoga. My work is influenced by my personal drive to learn and understand anatomy and physiology and to integrate eastern and western methodologies in order to deepen the therapeutic effects of the yoga practice. I am currently completing my 800-hour Yoga Therapist accreditation at the Stress Management Center of Marin.
