E-RYT 200, RCYT, Mindfulness Educator. I am a devotee of the art of yoga. Yogees combines my love for working with children and my enthusiasm for unique physical and mental wellness of yoga.

In my early 20’s, studying consciousness, I came upon a book: Be Here Now by Ram Dass, which truly blew my mind wide open. This introduced me to yoga as a life path. Yoga has changed my life in so many ways. It has taught me to be healthier, happier, and take care of myself and others. After studying and practicing yoga for several years, I decided to follow my heart and become a teacher. I could not imagine my life without yoga. I am truly following my bliss.

I began my yoga journey in the 1990’s with a love of books on meditation and pranayama. I have been blessed to learn from many great teachers taking tools and words of wisdom from each experience. I am grateful for those teachers and offer them my humble gratitude.<br />
