Having spent her teenage years as a competitive dancer, she recognized yoga's capacity to facilitate fierce grace and profound bodily conditioning for its practitioners. Throughout the years her practice has evolved, from glorified stretching to what today represents a sincere devotion to this path of self-actualization Her classes encourage thoughtful movement mechanics, exposure to yogic philosophy & classic texts, and an inquiry into our internal landscape. If you like to stay curious, develop strength & mobility safely, and laugh at quirky jokes, join her on the mat.
