My yoga journey began Almost 15 years ago when I discovered Hot Yoga living in San Francisco California. Yoga became a daily practice in my life, bringing me constant and continuous peace of mind. I went in for the physical but came out with a sense of pride and passion for myself realizing quickly that it's never about how you look in that room but how you feel. Wanting others to approach yoga in the same way it lead me to my first teacher training in late 2013. I obtained my RYT 200hr certification and continue to educate myself with trainings and workshops as well as I have a dedicated personal practice. I have taught over 2000 studio classes priding myself on personal attention with verbal and physical alignment details, injury modification and positive encouragement always. I am grateful to be apart of something that is so transformative for people. Everyone comes in the room for different reasons. I look forward to teaching you and being apart of your yoga journey in our wonderful community.

You’ll flow continuously through strong sequences of traditional Sun Salutations and standing postures, linking breath with movement and building confidence and strength as you push the edge of your balance and flexibility.
Wise Warrior - Non-Heated
Senior Warrior. Offered in the non-heated yoga room. Aimed with knowledge of the medical conditions of the class participants and the ability to modify poses to accommodate each participant’s health circumstances, our well-informed Yoga instructors guide seniors through gentle movement and stretching. Teaching them to breathe and move on their mat will help them breath and move off the mat. Yoga for seniors has many health benefits such as reducing swelling in joints while increasing joint mobility and improves balance and strength.
