In 2004, I found my mat on a cold winter night in the mountains of Whistler British Columbia and was instantly hooked. After 10 years, 5 cities and 2 countries, I realized how important it was to have balance in my life. It was that realization that brought me straight back to my mat. In 2016, I plunged into teacher training to become RYT200 with CorePower Yoga. With a strong personal practice and svadhyaya, I found Jason Crandell in San Francisco and completed his 300hr training at Love Story Yoga in 2019. In 2020, as a forever student, I became a certified Yoga Tune Up® Instructor, a style of conscious corrective exercise that strikes a balance between the worlds of yoga, fitness, and myofascial self-care. Today, I continue to spark excitement within myself to spread and share my yoga experience through physical and mental movement focusing my asana teachings on strength, function, and range of motion.​
