My love of yoga sparked in my teenage years when I was introduced to asana (postures) through a dance background. After several years of dabbling, I began to practice consistently while completing my undergraduate degree in Environmental Science as a means to develop mind-body awareness for optimal wellness. Hiking over 4,000 km on the Pacific Crest Trail after graduating, I began to understand the benefits of breath and meditation to help overcome an array of physical and mental discomforts. Quickly realizing that I wanted to deepen my knowledge and understanding of the ancient practice, I traveled in India, where I completed my 200 hour hatha vinyasa yoga teacher training and attended a 10 day Buddhist meditation course. I enjoy practicing and teaching yoga that is gracefully energetic, balanced, accessible, and most importantly, makes you smile. Passionate about all aspects of yoga, I always guide a practice which can be extended off the mat and into your daily life.
