Philosophy: I’m all about illuminating the impact of yoga on and off the mat, and connecting back to your inner wisdom.

Teachings: 2nd Story Pilates & Yoga, Suryaside, BambooYoga, Ganeshspace (an online community), and The Connective (an online community)
Philosophy: My teaching philosophy is that my job is not to change you and I don't want to. I want to help you be more fully who you already are because who you are is beautiful and amazing. My life philosophy is to laugh a lot, never take myself too seriously and help everyone I can.
Fun facts: I'm a teacher/owner of a yoga cooperative - The Connective. We're a group of teachers bringing more equity, diversity, accountability & accessibility to the yoga and fitness community. I'm a web producer by day- building and maintaining web pages for a large non-profit organization. I'm obsessed with myths - love me some Gods & Goddesses and I love to tell stories.

Style(s) of Yoga: Vinyasa, Slow Flow, Restorative, and Yin. I also have certification to teach kid's yoga classes.
