FAQ

What inspired you to teach yoga?

Honestly, it was a deep love of the practice based on my own profound healing and growth. I would practice and study for years before I got up the courage to stand up in all of my raw vulnerability and be seen and I felt like it was the biggest hurdle of my life to simply offer what was in my heart. I have gained and grown so much by having the privilege and honor of teaching and allowing myself to evolve in real time, side by side with my students, who are often times my biggest teachers.

Who are your most influential teachers?

So many! Rod Stryker, Janet Stone, Jacqui Bonwell, Marc St. Pierre and life.

How would you describe your classes?

My classes are thoughtful and fluid. Dynamic in the sense that they can be both simultaneously challenging and nurturing. I try to have a light hearted approach and also invoke the soul of why we're doing what we're doing. And always enough time for rest.

Why do you feel retreats are transformational?

I'm constantly blown away by the transformation, shift and remembering that can happen when we give ourselves permission to step away from our day to day routines and take time to give back to and get curious about ourselves. How by taking ourselves out of our comfort zone we begin to travel new inner terrain that can often times be slightly uncomfortable but ends up being liberating and bonding. I also love continuously experiencing and witnessing what can be born from a spark of connection when we allow ourselves to be seen, go deep and have a little fun while we're at it. Retreats give the space to, as Joseph Campbell says, 'rediscover the moving power of your life.'
