Move and be moved. Share the continued learning of yoga with me.

I was introduced to yoga as a teenager when our ballet teacher decided to give us a "fun day." In college, I found it offered a much needed respite from the hustle and bustle of New York City and academic life. 

Five years later, I moved to San Francisco and dove head (and body) first into yoga studies and earned my RYT-200 hour training certification from Yoga Tree in 2013. It changed my outlook and appreciation of the practice completely. In 2017, I completed my 500 hour training with a specialization in yoga therapeutics. 

As a ballet and contemporary trained dancer, I came to the practice with a lot of body awareness, but also with many patterns to break. My initial attraction was to the "dance" of vinyasa, but over time, exposure to Iyengar, Anusara, Hatha, yoga therapeutics and other alignment-based forms found me craving a slower and more deliberate practice. I am privileged to live in the Bay Area and learn from joyful teachers like Sean Haleen, Harvey Deutch, Lauren Slater, Janet Stone, and more. 

In the last five years, I've taught in both studio and corporate settings. Currently, I'm more focused on offering corporate wellness classes. Please contact me if you'd like to discuss bringing yoga classes to your San Francisco workplace!
