I started my yoga journey in high school, but it wasn’t until 2015 that I discovered hot yoga and was hooked. Over the years I had the honor of experiencing many beautiful studios and inspiring teachers.
I have been teaching Yoga for 6 years and loves to teach Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin Styles. I am certified as a 200-hour Yoga Teacher locally and then also did another 300-hour Teacher Training program in Bali.
I discovered my love for yoga in 2016 after taking a hot yoga class. Ever since then I’ve been hooked. Yoga has helped my mind, body and soul tremendously. In 2019 I signed up for my first teacher training to dive deeper into the practice.
I started practicing Bikram yoga in March 2001 and loved it from the beginning. I felt the benefits immediately. I found it challenging yet very rewarding at the same time. I felt balance in both my mind and body leaving me feeling energized after I practiced.
I am originally from Tacoma, WA where I began dance training as a little girl. After performing for Walt Disney World and Disney Live touring shows upon graduating high school, I studied Dance and Music at the University of Washington and graduated with honors in 2015.
After a ten year career working with animals, I found an incredible sense of authenticity in my yoga practice when I moved from Florida to NYC in 2015. As a long time practitioner of marital arts, I follow the wisdom from the principles of Budo and understand that the true mastery to any discipline comes from cultivating one's inner strength.
I’ve been practicing yoga on and off for six years. Until I realized how big of an impact yoga was for my mental, spiritual, and physical health. I started practicing religiously for about two years now.
Inspired by my love for people, I spent many years instructing and participating in various types of activity classes (swimming, step class, dance class, weights, etc.) which have all contributed to my health and well being. However; I found myself yearning for more.
I started my yoga journey in 2012 and to be honest, I didn’t even make it 35 minutes into class. Like any beginner new to the heat, I was riddled with horrible self talk preventing me from just enjoying the moment, things like.. “When will it be over?”, “I can’t do this”, “What’s wrong with me?”, “Everybody else is doing fine”.
I’ve been lucky enough to spend the last few years globetrotting with my spouse and my two pups, and I am loving my new home in the PNW! I have been practicing for over 10 years, with my yoga journey beginning as a collegiate athlete.
Yoga is a way of getting to know ourselves, so that we can prepare ourselves to be as peaceful as possible in this chaotic world. I was hooked immediately when I took my first hot yoga class. It was a physical challenge unlike any I had experienced. It was a new form of meditation I had never done.
