I was first introduced to yoga in 2003, and loved the balance of focus, challenge, and relaxation that I found through my practice. Yoga has allowed me to focus on the present moment in such an accessible way, and I appreciated how – no matter where in the world I am – I can always come to the mat and find a sense of calm.I received my RYS 200 Teacher Certification at Himalaya Yoga Valley in Dharamsala, India, in June 2010 and studied under Yogacharya Lalit, with a focus on Ashtanga and Hatha yoga.
While I feel immense gratitude for all the teachers I have had along the way, I believe each student is their own best teacher. In my classes, I encourage students to listen to, and learn from themselves and their own experiences. I also believe in the power of breath to help connect to the present moment, and throughout my classes students are encouraged to use observation of the breath and body to stay connected to the present and immerse themselves in their practice. Yoga has been such a gift in my life and I am grateful for the opportunity to share it with others.
