- Boston, MA
My yoga practice began, as it does for so many, in early adulthood. Throughout the years I’ve come to classify myself as a “yoga mutt” given the myriad of styles I’ve studied. I remain a dedicated student of Iyengar, Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga. My practice has taken different shapes over the years but has always been heavily influenced by intentional structure, alignment and breath. From the time I began teaching, combining precision and form with fluidity and creativity inspired me and continues to bolster my path as an asana teacher. My teaching combines the sweat of astanga, the wisdom of iyengar and the freedom of vinyasa while cultivating introspective space. I hope to always remain a curious and dedicated student as well as a humble teacher. I am grateful to Patricia Walden and Natasha Rizopolous for continually strengthening and inspiring my daily practice, to Schuyler Grant and the Kula Yoga Project community for giving me the tools to teach and to Nikki Costello for showing me how to be a yogi.
