I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have a mini-schnauzer named Patrick Bateman (He's the studio mascot). I love yoga and I love sharing things I love with other people. I started practicing yoga while working on my masters thesis. Since then, I have completed two 200 teacher training programs through Yoga Shelter, level 1 yoga therapy through Loyola Marymounts Yoga Therapy Rx program, and a 300 hour teacher training at Yoga Blend led by the amazingly awesome Christy Marsden. After my first training in 2006 I got what it truly meant to be of service and felt a strong pull to spread the yoga love. I found it to be extremely rewarding - hearing from several patients that yoga had changed their lives.
