My mission is to offer you support toward aligning with your most authentic self and true nature; love, joy, and freedom.
My journey began at age five when I became mystified by yoga and meditation after being introduced to the practice by my parents. I remember feeling at home in the practice amidst a world in which I always felt to be a seeker. The practice of yoga and meditation stayed as a grounding force throughout my life and inspired me to become a teacher in 2011. Since my youth, it allowed me to reside within my heart, settle my mind, connect to the earth, hold space for others, get to the root of my suffering, and find ways to bask in compassion and laughter along the way.
Through teaching yoga and meditation, my goal is to share the various tools and practices rooted in spiritual, physical, and philosophical disciplines my teachers passed on to me. I am grateful for the opportunity to share these practices all over the world, from top studios in New York and Philadelphia to a small community in Guyana while serving in the Peace Corps. My classes, workshops, trainings, and retreats offer various disciplines and practices that stay at the root of the lineage. Classes seamlessly weave together to bring us home to the heart by integrating dharma talks, spiritual philosophy, eclectic music, alignment cues, expert assists, chanting, breath work, meditation, and a breath-centered creative vinyasa sequence, while combined with a sweet, simple, stress free vibe.
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, 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 of yoga and meditation.
