What inspired you to teach yoga?

The infinite amount of learning possible

Seane Corn, Byron Katie, and my daughters

How would you describe your classes?

Spiritually infused, mentally awakening, physically challenging but adaptable for all levels of practitioners

Why do you feel retreats are transformational?

We get out of our element, our day-to-day and pause. we take a moment to realign and focus in on the moment instead of what’s next. our body, mind and soul have a pause to recalibrate

What is your favorite pose to teach?

The one that is the most challenging for the student. It’s not about the pose at’s about how you enter and exit the pose that matters. And if it’s challenging it’s fun to see how you react!

What is your favorite pose to practice?

The one that is the most challenging for me or is the most uncomfortable. it’s nice to find new space in my body, mind and soul

Where is your favorite place to travel?

There are so many! I don’t have a favorite one actually. I enjoy when I can connect to the locals and learn all about their culture and ways of doing things
