About The Teacher

I believe that yoga is the most powerful tool in the world to elevate ourselves, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. We can refine our bodies through the physical study of yoga postures, and clarify our minds through powerful meditation and visualization. Through this transformation, we begin to manifest our destiny and fulfill our lives.

My practice started within the the 26+2 Hatha Yoga tradition. After 3 classes I was hooked, and consider losing weight and improving my mood as the two main benefits. I felt called to serve others and share what I had learned by earning my ERYT-200 through Sterling Hot Yoga Works. I spent several years competing on the national level, and I enjoyed the focus that a disciplined training program gave.

More recently, my personal practice has evolved to include the more subtle aspects of yoga, as well as different styles, like Yin and Vinyasa. This led me on a journey to New York City to study with Jared McCann, where I earned a second 200-hour certification in Jared McCann Vinyasa Fusion, and will be studying Advanced Vinyasa with him this summer, graduating in August 2017. I was able to find a system of meditation and yoga asanas (postures) that leaves me feeling grounded but light, and I hope to share some of this with you in Mexico.
