About Me

CYA-RYT 200
HOLY FIRE II REIKI MASTER (A.R.T)
WING CHUN KUNG FU RED Sr. SASH
CERTIFIED CHROMOTHERAPIST
MALA JEWELER (BhaktiBead)

First, I am a mommy to a wonderful 10 year old by named Jack who loves to practice with me and loves learning about the mindfulness side of Yoga (not just the postures!). Yoga has always helped me stay on my feet and not lose my ground. It has kept me seeing the beauty in every situation no matter how ugly it seemed....everything in life presents to us as a lesson to be learned or an experience to enjoy or help us grow and see our potential. I absolutely love to guide students to the doorway that leads to their best and highest potential. I am also a Red Sash in Wing Chun Kung Fu (think IP MAN movies ;) ) I have been training this martial art for two years! I am an assistant coach (or what we call Si-je for older kung fu sister) for the kids kung fu program where I help the students stretch, train, and execute their drills. Like yoga, it also teaches focus and discipline. Recently, I was presented the opportunity for me to help with the design of a yoga space that is located inside the martial arts school! I was so excited. Thus was the birth of "The Yoga Den Studio". I was appointed as the head teacher of the Yoga program/space. I run it as if it was my own business; with passion and enthusiasm. Our philosophy is all about keeping Yoga affordable while maintaining the quality and depth of the practice itself.

About My Service

I currently teach Vinyasa Yoga (all levels). I will sometimes incorporate restorative elements into my class as well just to shake things up and really spoil the students! I enjoy teaching Hatha Yoga as well and am comfortable with it as well as Power Yoga flows and Gentle yoga for older adults.
