About The Teacher

I was influenced early in life by the practice of yoga, my first classes

were after school at 11 years old. In my adolescence and teen years I

became very fascinated by different tools for self discovery and

expansion of thought. This is what most certainly led me to pursue

meditation and inspired interest in Indian philosophy.

As a teeanger I found the practice of asana to be a great compliment to

my other physical activities, and meditation a tool for calming and

focusing my busy mind.

At 19 I took my first trip to India to study more deeply and intensely

the practice and philosophy of yoga. That first trip took me to a number

of Ashrams in Southern India. I developed a keen desire to know more

about the history, language and culture surrounding yoga. This

fascination led me to complete my studies in Asian religion and South

Asia and to make several subsequent trips to India.

Over the years I have been blessed to have the opportunity to practice

with many wonderful teachers in the Ashtanga, Iyengar traditions and

various movement practices.  My personal practice is based in the

Ashtanga tradition but I am strongly influenced by the Iyengar method,

therapeutic practice and movement.

In my teaching I draw upon many influences but really encourage a

practice unique to the individual. I truly believe that practice itself,

of all the limbs, is the true teacher and I hope to inspire and nurture

my students to cultivate their own sadhana.
