More about me
Yoga for ALL bodies
I was lucky enough to be exposed to yoga at a young age. As a kid, it was a time to connect inwardly and let go of the stresses of school. Little did I know that yoga would become a major part of my way of life. By the time I was 18, I desperately wanted to be a yoga instructor. I wanted to make other people feel the way I felt every time I took a yoga class. So, at 18, I got my 200hr certification from The Yoga Institute. I immediately started teaching after that. I wanted to give back and help guide others to release and let go the way I was able to as a kid. I've now been teaching group and private lessons for over 5 years. Everyone's practice looks different and I celebrate those differences, always offering modifications and encouraging my students to listen to their body at all times, even if that leads them straight to childspose ; ) My classes are inspired by my experience teaching in New York, Houston and London, all to merge into a style that is completely unique, fun and challenging.
I offer many workshops and courses with beginners. So if you're new to yoga, you have come to the right place! I truly believe that the hardest thing about yoga is signing up for that first class, after that, everything gets a lot easier and clearer. So, Beginners, come to class with all of your fears and concerns. And then, let's squash them all together!
I am known for my soothing voice, easing my students to release tension and focus on being present. Meditation is a huge part of my practice and I bring that into my teaching. Each class will begin and end with a guided meditation. I vary the meditations from class to class, allowing you to notice which form works best for you. I have recently released an album, "The Light Within," featuring many of my original meditations inspired by my wonderful teachers and mentors throughout the years.
Alongside my yoga, I have always been a fitness fanatic. I'm the one who takes every class they can get their hands on just to experience all of the different styles out there! I am a certified Group Fitness Instructor from NASM and I am currently studying to become a Personal Trainer to broaden my understanding of the human body.
Each lesson has a handcrafted playlist, that I create inspired by that class' flow. Yoga is about connecting to your body and freeing yourself of the weight you carry throughout the day. What a better way of doing this than moving to music! I create playlists with the goal to make you want to move, flow to the beat while distracting yourself from the length of time in one posture.
