My Story

Trained as a ballet dancer, I later became a marathon runner, enjoying the challenge of overcoming my limits. A knee injury led me to yoga and I quickly fell in love with my practice and with the way yoga made me feel emotionally and physically. I completed my RYT 200 hour yoga teacher training with Lumi Power Yoga.

Why and how I teach

I teach powerful vinyasa classes to develop strength, flexibility and relaxation. Breath is an integral part of my class as is discovering and working on your own capabilities. I teach to inspire my community to empower themselves through the practice of yoga by connecting the mind, body and soul. I thrive in making my students feel welcome and have fun by encouraging a playful but focused energy in classes.

My mantra

“Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful” Thich Nhat Hanh
