My Philosophy

I am a 200hr RYT through Jonny Kest's Yoga Teacher Training at Lifepower Yoga. Currently, I am working towards earning my 500hr RYT certification via Matt Giordano's Chromatic Yoga Training. I am trained in teaching Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Slowburn, and Yin.

My philosophy is of course rooted in the methods and beliefs taught to me in my chosen training programs, wisdom that has been passed down from long and powerful lineages. From this rich foundation, for me, yoga is choosing the path of going within, of looking inside yourself for the answers, for the truth of who you are and what you are meant to do in this life. It's this idea of discovering yourself beyond the material and superficial to connect back to your truest nature and let it come alive. Yoga is this beautiful and brilliant expression of yourself completely. We learn to be present in our bodies through asana, we learn to heal by connecting to our breath. We learn to accept and transform in all the ways that make us lighter and fuller. A peaceful mind, a courageous heart, and a healthy body are built in these ways.

I believe that there is no right or wrong in doing yoga. No experience, flexibility or fancy yoga gear required. Our bodies are all different and we move in different ways. Come as you are. I welcome you.

I am not a vegan. I don't have the perfect yoga body. I enjoy a great cocktail, I watch Netflix series, my kids eat mac n cheese! Of course, I live an active and healthy lifestyle, full of holistic practices and spiritual rituals. My philosophy on yoga is the same as my philosophy on life. Be mindful and make your own decisions about what you do, eat, drink, think, be. Perfection is never the aim. Balance, authenticity, and love are.

breath

Yoga is a breathing practice first and foremost. Together, we will connect back to our breath and understand how to use it for healing.

Asana

Asana, or posture, is what we use to get into our bodies. Through our yoga practice of movement, we will learn to feel and understand our ultimate temples.

equanimous Mind

Through breath and movement, we detach from our thoughts. Our emotions have less control over us. We can live in this external world without so easily being affected by its constant and inevitable fluctuations.
