FAQ

What inspired you to teach yoga?

The inability to withhold my heart's deepest calling to serve. I've always wanted to be of service to other humans. Throughout my life that's looked different in different careers. Finally yoga has allowed me to touch many lives in the space of 90 minutes. Throughout a week I get to share breath and space with sometimes 500 people. In the beginning I was "inspired" to teach because I just couldn't help it! After my first 100 hours of training I was itching to share the practice -- to move and breathe and sing with people. It's been the greatest honor and privilege of my life since I began.

Who are your most influential teachers?

Rusty Wells, Janet Stone, and of course my loving family. A close fourth and fifth would be the teachers that are Love and Loss.

How would you describe your classes?

A strong, yet playful, music-infused, celebratory freestyle vinyasa flow practice. You can expect inspired flows, big, joyous smiles the the opportunity to start anew.

Why do you feel retreats are transformational?

The opportunity to step back from our day-to-day rhythms of work, family, habitual patterns of thinking/seeing/feeling/tasting/touching/smelling is incredibly powerful. A retreat can be a full-stop reset. In this space we have the chance to lay out life out in front of us; what's working? What is no longer of service? We get to zoom out, practice deeply and deliberately decide how we want to 're-enter' our daily lives.
