My first experience of yoga was 2010. I took a hot yoga class in sweat pants, without a towel and without a clue what I was getting into. But as soon as we started breathing and moving mindfully, I realized that I was there for a reason. And so began my affinity for yoga and mindfulness. I completed my 200 hour certification through YogaWorks under Jessica Seaborn, who is an angel and a guru. I learned so much from her, beyond just the poses. She sparked in me an exploration of self. I learned I would be a forever student. Shortly thereafter, I completed my Bachelors Degree in Biology, but I continued to study myself and search for greater meaning. I attended yoga, philosophy, and astrology workshops and classes all over Southern California. It was only relatively recently that I realized that though all of that information had great purpose and meaning, it would not bring me to myself. Only I could do that. And here I am… always on a mission to self discovery. I hope to invite others to look inward in search of themselves or to reconnect or redefine a sense of self. In my classes, you will have the opportunity to do just that as you move your body in fun, sometimes challenging, and mindful ways, all the while cultivating a sense of peace and ease within. Join me for classes or contact me with any questions.
