How would you describe your teaching style?

I have an intuitive and exploratory approach to yoga. I incorporate creative transitions, playful energy, and an inviting voice. I intend to bring spirited guidance and leave my students feeling spacious, inspired, and empowered.

What type of student would benefit from your classes?

Anyone looking to explore movement in their body in new ways, and find a still, clear 'blue sky mind'.

What does yoga mean to you?

Yoga means space- creating space in the physical body, heart, mind, and soul. Yoga means 'doing' less and 'being' more. It is healing so we can be and show up as our best selves.

What is your favorite asana and why?

My favorite asana is a handstand because it brings playful energy! It brings me back to my childhood days as a gymnast. I also learn a lot about myself on the way up and down.
