About The Teacher

Senior Yoga Teacher and Ayurvedic Therapist.

Belief, patience, and commitment is my everyday life motto. These three words are the clue to success and prosperity.​

I am a certified yoga teacher by Centered Yoga Institute under the direction and guidance of Paul Dallaghan, one of the leading teachers of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and pranayama, and an international diploma recognized worldwide Yoga Teachers Association. ​

​My teaching style is a Traditional Mysore Ashtanga but with sensitivity to older people, pregnant students and others who need props and can't do a whole series of practice.

I teach from my own experience, being also a yoga practitioner, based on what I learned from my teacher, and also being a mom and a survivor.​

I offer deep respect and thanks to my direct teachers, whose guidance has enabled me to grow in the path of yoga.

I am also grateful to the long line of teachers who have come before them, who have spent their lives learning and coming to understand the practice, and who have passed down the knowledge they received through direct teachings of their teachers and their teachers’ teachers.

Each day I learn, too, from my young kids, Danielle and Michael, as well as from my students. These interactions keep me reflecting on myself, which in turn helps me grow.

My yoga path has been grounded in certain practices that have grown in intensity over the years. These practices have refined my behavior and influenced how I live in this world – taking care of family, making a living, and interacting with others.
