About The Teacher

I see the value of practicing yoga on a broad spectrum - from the breathwork of pranayama to the engaging, strengthening, heating aspects of Vinyasa yoga to the calming, releasing, rejuvenation aspects of Yin and Restorative Yoga. I teach along this full spectrum and believe the goal of yoga is to be embodied, no matter what style of yoga you are doing.  I have a special place in my heart for sharing yoga with an aging population and making sure they practice safely and with embodied wisdom.  Once again, on the other side of the spectrum, I am a surfer and love to share how yoga can inform, improve, and unwind one's surfing practice.  I live in Fairfax, California and lead yoga and surf retreats to Sayulita Mexico in January.
