About Me

I was intrigued by Yoga, very fortunately, at a young age. At that time, I was looking for something that would help me feel better about myself. One thing I know to be true, is that the universe is always supporting us. When you ask for something with all your heart and it is meant to be, opportunities are presented to you. Yoga was that gift to me, it continues to fulfill what I truly need, and open doors I never knew existed! I am so grateful for all the amazing teachers that have come into my life when I've needed them, specifically the wisdom and encouragement from my Guru Sandra Sammartino. Through the practice of Yoga I have been steadily uncovering my true presence and potential. Yoga has informed me of who I really am. I am a healer, and I need to continue the path of healing myself, in order to continue to heal others. My mission statement. I understand my purpose is to assist others in finding optimal health, healing and enlightenment.

I'm inspired to teach Yoga from the heart, to share what I’m passionate about and what has helped me the most. The style of Yoga I instruct is gentle to the body, with emphasis on the breath and overall awareness. Connecting to the present moment, the body relaxes, the mind becomes calm, and prana (energy) is activated to allow deep healing for the whole body.

I consider Yoga to be mind-body-energy medicine that enriches every aspect of our being. I infuse the sister science of Yoga, Ayurveda, into my daily life for health & healing. I have developed Wellness Programs based on Ayurvedic principles. I'm also developing my abilities as a trained Reiki energy healer (Level II certified).

I strongly believe that Yoga can be accessible for anyone! My desire is to share Yoga with all ages, abilities, and walks of life. I currently offer classes from birth and beyond.
