I’m a vinyasa yoga teacher (500 RYT) from the U.S. currently living and teaching in London. I’ve been teaching since 2011 and completed an advanced training with Jason Crandell while living in London. Drawing from my background in human biology and my love of physiology, psychology and all things wellness-related; I like to create challenging yet mindful flows to help my students safely push past their perceived limitations (both physically and mentally). My classes are dynamic, alignment-based and strong; yet they are also fluid, compassionate, and woven with a steady breath. A personal witness to the amazing changes yoga can bring to one’s life, I find great reward in sharing it with others.
As an adult there have been many things that have caught my interest, but I always find myself moving forward on this path of healing. After changing my major several times (premed, double major in art and psychology, pharmacological chemistry, and finally human biology) I received my B.Sc. from the University of California-San Diego. Yoga had been a positive force in my life throughout my years at UCSD. After graduating, I decided to deepen my understanding of it, which led me to teaching. As I started my yoga journey, I realized everything I was learning was so close to what I already believed. The Eightfold Path of Yoga might sound strange, but it’s likely something you will already find inherent in you. Yoga is not a brand, a celebrity, a religion, nor a posture that requires a dancer’s flexibility. Yoga is a personal journey, a union of all aspects of yourself and the world around you. It is simple. It is accessible. It makes you feel good (physically, mentally and spiritually). And in our day of media-overload, it can also be confusing! I believe in being well-informed and reading between the lines. I believe in asking why-even to your teachers! I believe in knowing your sources. And when you’re still confused, I believe in trusting your-(honest)-self.
