The most profound gift you can give this world is your presence. Yet in this fast modern world stress, worry, and fear often consume our day to day busy life, making it difficult to embody our truest self, stay grounded in the heart, and live life to our fullest potential.
My mission is to share the modern science and ancient wisdom of meditation and yoga practices so that we may live happier and healthier lives, create stronger more beautiful relationships with ourselves and others, and stand in the power of our most authentic self.
I am a meditation teacher, massage therapist, and yoga teacher. My journey began at age five when I became mystified by yoga and meditation after being introduced to the practice by my parents. I deepened my curiosity traveling the world learning and working with a diverse community of yoga and meditation teachers, healers, shamans, and medicine workers.¬†This evolved into my passion of studying ancient wisdom and modern science for the goal of simplifying and integrating these practices into our everyday lives with where we are now.
My classes, workshops, trainings, and retreats offer various culturally responsive¬†disciplines and practices that stay at the root of the lineage so that we may reside within the heart, cultivate peace of mind, connect to the earth, hold space for others, and find ways to bask in compassion and laughter along the way.
I am eternally grateful to my teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life, Don and Amba Stapleton, Al Finger, Elena Brower, Rod Stryker, Heather Rice, Ram Dass, Manorama, and Jack Kornfield for their knowledge, wisdom, and grace they bestowed upon me through their teachings. To my family and the many teachers in my community who continue to inspire me, especially the students who allow me to share my love and passion. I hope to center future work around youth empowerment and intersecting equity-based identity work with yoga, meditation, and body work.
