It’s my personal belief that everyone's yoga journey begins with their first breath, arriving at body, or perhaps even before then. When one becomes aware they are on this path it’s simply a matter of time & perseverance.

Around 2003 I stepped into what I knew as my first yoga class. I was recovering from a traumatic brain surgery that left me chronically disabled - I was 14 years old at the time. It was not hot yoga, but a style based in energy work similar to Kundalini or Qi Gong. It was my first experience in what I knew then as yoga, & had tremendous effects on my physical recovery & depression. Later, in 2008 I would begin my hot yoga practice with Bikram yoga, this time I was 19 & mostly recovered from my surgeries with the exception of chronic nerve damage. I always enjoyed being physical & competitive, & at that first class I knew this was going to change my life.

After about 7 years of practice I found myself going through yet another brain surgery in 2013 - this was to be my 3rd operation. Previously I worked in the trades as a metal fabricator & welder, however this last surgery would usher me into my new occupation as a yoga teacher. In 2014 I arrived at my first yoga training. I completed Bikram’s nine week teacher training, spending the next year after that traveling & teaching around the world & across the USA. My training did not stop there, & since then I have trained under Bernie Clark, Sarah Powers, Esak Garcia, & senior teachers of S.N Goenka (Vipassana) & Richard Miller (iRest). I've also done other 200hr YTT’s in person & online as continuing education. My training hours exceeded over 1000, &, since 2014 my teaching hours exceed 5,000.

This is all to say, teaching is my life's passion. It is not a job or a duty. But a privilege & an honor for which I am grateful.

I became a yoga teacher because I was inspired by the transformative power of this practice in my own life and I wanted to share this with others. My goal for my classes is to create an inclusive space where all are welcome, where students can feel supported and engaged in their practice, while focusing on promoting physical and mental well-being.

I've been practicing yoga for 9 years, and I've come to understand that it's much more than just the physical practice of asanas. Yoga is a holistic approach to wellness, encompassing not only the physical body but also the mind, emotions, and spirit. It can be seen as a lifestyle, a spiritual practice, and a way to tap into your own inner wisdom.

As a teacher, I believe that everyone should have access to the benefits of yoga, regardless of their experience or background. That's why I strive to create an environment where students can go beyond their perceived limitations and find their own unique path to growth and self-discovery. I have a true passion for teaching yoga and love to see my students grow and transform through their practice.

So, whether you're just starting out or you're looking to deepen your practice, I'd love to help guide you on your journey.
