While my first teacher took the form of my mom’s Kathy Smith VHS, I went on to study with many different teachers in various styles and traditions over the years. My exploration eventually lead me to Rod Stryker's ParaYoga, which resonated deeply with me. To further develop my personal practice, and to share the profound effects that yoga can have with others, I continued my studies with Karina Mirsky, whom I received my 200-hour yoga teaching certification from in 2014. I am currently a Yoga Alliance registered yoga & meditation teacher.
A seeker by nature, yoga took its roots in me early on. Initially drawn in by the physical practice, yoga has since revealed itself to be a discipline that touches every aspect of my being. It has become not only a way to keep my physical body in balance, but also the means through which I source peace, clarity, and strength. I truly believe that yoga is the single most important tool that anyone—and everyone—has for maintaining their well-being: physically, mentally, and spiritually.
My style of teaching is strongly influenced by Tantric Hatha Yoga, and incorporates asana, pranayama, and meditation, along with bits of ayurveda and yogic philosophy. My goal is to help cultivate a sattvic (pure, balanced, and joyous) energy in those I teach, leading them towards the beauty of stillness, the power of presence, and the value of connection to the teacher within.
