I have been a student of yoga for about 8 years sampling different yogic traditions. I had always wanted to become a yoga teacher one day, but my inflexibility, scoliosis, multiple injuries, and lack of confidence, were obstacles it took years to get over. My journey into yoga began with a 2 year stint practicing Bikram Yoga as I was a recovering athlete who needed yoga to take the place of my normal workout.

When I moved to California my yoga practice transformed into Vinyasa yoga (where the breath is paired with movement, unlike Bikram). My yoga teacher came up to me one day and mentioned I would be a great candidate for being a teacher; and with her guidance and my newfound confidence, I accomplished my dream of becoming a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) in 2015. 

After graduating, it became clear that my teaching style & values differed from the fast-paced Vinyasa style I had been taught in and then my yoga practice transformed once again I became a student of a Yin (slow, gentle yoga) and then Restorative yoga. Restorative yoga poses are held for longer periods of time, creating circulation of lymph and improving flexibility through working with the connective tissue. Through these gentle but firm movements you are able to find deeper relaxation and a sense of peace by connecting deeply to your breath. 

I teach a deeply relaxing Yin / Restorative Yoga Flow combined with the healing effects of Crystal Bowls. Slow stretches awaken the body, with the emphasis on the breath. Crystal Bowls provide energetic support as their vibrational medicine brings harmony to your energetic body, while the yoga works on the physical body. Through this cosmic alignment, coupled with the breath focused on the intuition of the heart, you are able to shift into higher states of consciousness.

I would love to reconnect you with your body using breath, movement and appreciation for wherever you are in your practice <3
