About us

Mobile OM Founder and Yoga Instructor

I attended my first yoga class in 2005 looking for a way to get in shape and regain the flexibility I had growing up as a dancer. I left that first class mentally and physically exhausted, yet I could not wait to come back for more. It was more than the physical changes I experienced, but a deep mental and emotional shift that kept me coming back to my mat. Over the years, my yoga practice led me out of my comfort zone, taught me to breathe through resistance and struggle, and listen to my intuition, both on and off my mat. I am now mentally and physically stronger than I have ever been and continue to grow each and every day. As a teacher, I hope to inspire my students to connect authentically with themselves and listen to their intuition in order to become stronger and more centered in their physical body. My classes are powerful, breath-based vinyasa sequences that challenge the body and discipline the mind. I combine mindfulness, intuitive alignment and hands-on assistance to create a dynamic class that is accessible to all levels of experience.

“I used to think yoga was just a physical practice for stretching, strengthening and toning the body. I started practicing in 2005 looking for a way to get in better shape and to regain the flexibility I had growing up as a dancer. It was not long before I began to realize my yoga practice was doing more than teaching me to move and breath on my mat, I was also learning to move through life with more ease and create space for breath in my fast-paced life.

Over the years, my yoga practice has led me out of my comfort zone, taught me to breathe through struggle, create ease around resistance and listen to my intuition, both on and off my mat. Yoga has become much more than something I do, it is who I am.

When I moved to San Antonio in 2010, I began to search for a yoga studio to call home. This was not an easy task, as many of the studios around today had not yet opened their doors. I saw a need for yoga and personal transformation in San Antonio, and wanted to do my part to help spread yoga to the community. It wasn’t long before I started teaching at a couple of local studios. I loved being part of the budding yoga community, but still felt there was something missing.

The idea for a mobile yoga studio was sparked during a particularly sweet savasana at a weekend Baptiste Art of Assisting training in February of 2013. The weekend was focused around how to hold space for others and be of service to them not only in their physical practice, but to empower them to live BIG off the mat. As I lay down on my mat, mentally and physically exhausted and with no room for overthinking and over-analyzing, an idea came over me. What if, instead of teaching at a studio and waiting for students to come to me, I created a movement to take yoga to the people. This was the birth of Mobile Om.

I knew in order to change people’s mind about yoga and get more of the community involved in the practice, I needed to shake things up a bit. Instead of waiting around for people to find yoga, I needed to take yoga to the people. Changing people’s perception first meant to take away the traditional confines and structure of a studio.

I hosted the very first Mobile Om class in June of 2013 on the Hays Street Bridge. That first class, 12 people showed up. I knew I was on to something. Since then, the movement has evolved and grown in ways I could have never imagined.

Mobile Om is what it is because of the people who come out and support our classes and events. For that, I am forever grateful Thank you to all who have shown up and continue to show up to our classes and events. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul for believing in my dream and supporting my unconventional ways.
