From a young age I used physicality as a means to escape my emotional discomfort. My first Yoga practice was in 2003 to a Vinyasa DVD, and the feeling of coming home to myself was so profound that I immediately sought out literature for deeper understanding. Since then, the philosophy has evolved me daily. I have been a full-time yoga instructor since 2012, earning my first 200 hours in Power, Vinyasa, Yin, and Hot 26; later expanding into Yoga Medicine, Buti Yoga, and Rocket Yoga. I have taught group classes, privates, workshops, events, and teacher trainings to a wide range of demographics and abilities. My experiences as an athlete, body worker, and scientist make my approach challenging, therapeutic, and educational. My flow classes are dynamic and playful, while my hatha and yin classes meditative and disciplined. I consider myself a chameleon of styles, believing that no matter the moving meditation, Yoga is largely an internal practice of befriending Fear, and acting from Love.
