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, I discovered that practicing yoga 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 share my experience with others, teaching students 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 be open 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 achieve their goals.
As a 500E-RYT, I’ve logged over 5700 teaching and training hours Hatha and Vinyasa Alignment Yoga, Therapeutic Yoga, Yoga Philosophy and Prenatal Yoga. My work is influenced by my personal drive to learn and understand anatomy and physiology, as well as by those teachers with whom I’ve trained and/ or assisted teacher trainings, including Les Leventhal, Destiny Eurkus, Harvey Deutch P.T., Jane Austin and Annie Carpenter. My current path as a student and teacher is with an accredited Bay Area Yoga Therapy program that integrates eastern and western methodologies in order to deepen the therapeutic effects of the yoga practice.
