With my practice being a lifetime of study, sharing the benefits of yoga comes naturally to me. Along with asana, I instruct pranayama, meditation and chanting shanti mantra to beginners and advanced practitioners.
I began learning breath/body movement as an elite gymnast when I was a young girl. My coach was a yogi and she would teach us dristi and breathing exercises in addition to vinyasa. I went on to spend a few years coaching gymnastics as a teenager, sharing the principles of breath, body and mind connection. Recognizing the benefits, my Mom began practicing yoga with me and encouraged me to continue the practice once I ended my gymnastics career.
Twelve years ago I met Manju Jois and began my study of Ashtanga yoga. In 2020 he certified me to teach Yoga Therapy as well as the primary and second series of Ashtanga Yoga. I also practice under the guidance of Greg Tebb. One of Manju’s most senior students. I’ve also completed the full level one Sanskrit course offered by the American Sanskrit College.
Expanding my scope, I became a certified RAPID NeuroFascial Reset Specialist. This hands on therapy was very effective at relieving my shoulder pain a number of years ago. Adopting this therapy into my existing skill set has brought many benefits to my students and clients.
