For me, yoga is a conduit for self-knowledge, self-love, awareness and happiness. I developed my relationship with the divine on the yoga mat and yoga has helped me realize I am in love with life. I love to smile and I love to play.

I’m certified at the 500-hour level by Yoga Alliance and continue to study yoga for health, healing, stress relief and therapy. Having taught over 1000 classes to people ages 3 through 85, I’m aware that every class is different, occupying that particular space in time. I teach to the needs of my students.
