I am devoted to sharing my knowledge, and passion through the lens of yoga, to help guide all practitioners into greater alignment. Yoga is a tool to navigate life, to live better and live a happier, healthier and balanced. By practicing Yoga, we pursue a quiet and steady inner revolution, based on self care and inner healing.
We are here to evolve and life is our teacher. By focusing, slowing, and centering the breath, we cultivate a more patient mode of engagement. All levels of experience practitioners gain the confidence to see their capabilities. With subtle shifts of awareness our environment changes and we no longer try to transcend difficulties, but rather learn how to ease them, and enjoy the fact that we are here. Obstacles give us the opportunity to advance our yoga practice. Each day we try to do better is to than the day before and if not, be compassionate to yourself and try again. I guide practitioners find a safe and effective practice with achievable goals in sight. I strongly believe that there is a yoga practice for everybody and most important you need is your breath. When we practice yoga, we practice life. Through my experience as a yoga instructor, I have an understanding what is relevant for each student in each practice in order to encouraging their practice to evolve and grow. I strive to translate the teachings that yoga reveals and share with my students in a relevant way. . I believe that the yoga happens when we shed the preconceived ideas of what it is and step into each moment with openness. A yoga practice can help connect us to what is is we are meant to do, are dharma. How we be an asset to the collective soul?
Based on my experience of practicing and learning about I teach and practice Hatha yoga : meaning I practice breath and focus as I move through varying degrees of physical movement. It is simple right? Not quite, the grit and the gold come from learning how to tame the fluctuations of the mind. Yoga helps me to find clarity on my journey to wholeness .

I am humble practitioner of all styles of Hatha yoga and love to explore their differences and philosophies. I believe yoga is about connection. My classes are a mix of relatable yoga philosophy, theme based combinations of movement, hands on guidance, alignment instruction, breath work, and guided mediation. I enjoy breaking down more challenging poses in creative ways to help students find their footing. I strive to facilitate an experience where students are empowered and invested in their unique anatomy and mentality. I believe in using yoga as a tool to access the deeper layers of the mind and body. I’m passionate about making yoga approachable, accessible, and sustainable for everyone. In every lesson students move with awareness and connect to their breathing. All are encouraged to look inwardly and outwardly with a clear and present mind and to take their practice thoughtfully into their lives.
Yoga has taught me to be disciplined and consistent. It’s also taught me to be responsive to the current situation. So, practice. Always practice, and know that if your practicing waxes and wanes, everyone that practices yoga experiences the same. There is a practice that is right for you!
