Currently residing in Virginia, I have been blessed with the opportunity to bring my practice to the residents of Newport News, Williamsburg, Norfolk, and the surrounding areas. My focus has been to offer inward focus through colorful movement and mindful breath, so that students can breach their own limitations and rise as they stand in their truths.
My first experience with yoga was while visiting family in Seoul in 2007. I continued to practice yoga back home in Colorado, this time with a Kundalini instructor through 2009, when I went to DC for college. It wasn't until 2011 when I refound yoga during a particularly difficult time in my young adult life, as so many of us do. It was in yoga that I eventually began to refind my body, my foundation, and found that through breath and movement I had tools to navigate my life. My practice here opened new doors and opportunities in my personal practice, and their guidance helped shaped the yogi I was to become today.
After moving to Boston in early 2014, I decided to take my personal experience and growth with yoga to the next level and share its holistic life practice, and began one of my most transformative journeys with JP Centre Yoga's first 200hr YTT with Daniel Max and Magi Eisenberg. I received my RYT-200 in June 2015.
From there, I have taught over 1000 hours of classes, private sessions, workshops, and events, working to share the healing ability of yoga with Hampton Roads. My flavor of teaching is creative power Vinyasa, with a focus on strengthening and stabilizing, incorporating pranayama, mantra, and mudra into practice, although I also enjoy restorative, meditation, and chair. I am also a Sound Healer practitioner using Crystal Singing Bowls, Vibrations, and Mantra. Just as each moment in life is a totally different experience and opportunity to create change, each time we meet will be a little different and an opportunity to grow. I look forward to practicing with you! Namaste!
