I have been practicing yoga for almost a decade, but it was at my first Ashtanga class 5 years ago that I truly fell in love with the practice. The connection between the dynamic flow and the breath was addicting to me. Yoga soon became much more than just a physical workout, but a way of life, the perfect way to start each day. Practice gives me strength and stability, it is my rock, the one thing that I know will always be there. It is just you, your mat, and your steady breath leading you through the asanas.

I have studied traditional ashtanga with Sharath Jois at KPJAYI in Mysore, India, and attended multiple workshops, including with Manju Jois, Saraswathi Jois, Nancy Gilgoff and John Scott. I am a Yoga Alliance registered teacher (RYT 200), and I continuously strive to improve my teaching by assisting other experienced instructors.

My biology and anatomy background leads me to a body-centric viewpoint both in my teaching and practice. Recognizing the spectrum of ability levels and limits, and the variation from person to person, from day to day, from injury to health, is an important piece of my teaching style. My classes are appropriate both for beginners and intermediate practitioners. I teach traditional Ashtanga yoga, concentrating on the connection of breath and movement, but make a point of allowing people to progress at their own pace. I feel that yoga needs to be personal – you are the utmost authority on what your body feels like at any given time, its capacities and limits. I strive to be there to support and guide you in your yoga journey.
