About Me

Hello! I'm Tina. Welcome to my website.

I found yoga in college over 15 years ago. I moved towards it and away from it over the years, but my practice is here to stay now. Just as all things in life, there were lessons and experiences that I needed to have before I was ready to fully embark on this path, a path that was always calling me.

I am a mother, wife, and woman. I live in Michigan. I love the midwest way of life for raising a family, but I will always consider myself a Californian at heart. I was born and raised in San Jose. I graduated from Berkeley with a degree in Integrative Biology. I lived in San Francisco before fully journeying into motherhood. As a proud Bay Area and Silicon Valley native, I also worked at Yahoo! and spent most of my career at Facebook.

I have always been attracted to the world of healing, holistic living, and all things metaphysical and spiritual. Since the age of four, I really believed that I wanted to become a doctor. Now, I realize it was a deep instinct in my nature to want to heal, both myself and others, and to do so in a way that leveraged the ancient and natural wisdom in the world.

I consider myself a free spirit, but also a fierce spirit, which I credit my Mexican and Filipino ancestors for. Live as a warrior - courageous, strong, resilient and capable... as well as compassionate, peaceful, open-minded, and curious. Pursuing your dreams and becoming the truest expression of yourself are the goals, of course, but learning to revere yourself, your family, and your life as they are now is where true wealth exists.

Come with me on this path.
