ABOUT

I was influenced early in life by the practice of yoga. My first classes were after school at 11 years old, in my adolescence and teen years I became very fascinated by different tools for self-discovery and expansion of thought. As a teenager I found the practice of asana to be a great compliment to my other physical activities, and meditation a tool for calming and focusing my busy mind. This is likely what planted the seeds for my later pursuits in meditation and yoga.

 

At 19 I took my first trip to India to study more deeply and intensely the practice and philosophy of yoga. That first trip took me to a number of Ashrams in Southern India. I developed a keen desire to know more about the history, language and culture surrounding yoga. This fascination led me to complete my studies in Asian religion and South Asia and to make several subsequent trips to India.

 

Over the years I have been lucky to have the opportunity to practice with many wonderful

teachers in several yoga traditions and various movement practices.  My personal practice is

exploratory and varied including many modalities of movement, pranayama and meditation.

 

In my teaching I draw upon many influences but really encourage a practice

unique to the individual. I truly believe that practice itself, of all the limbs,

is the true teacher and I hope to inspire and nurture my students to

cultivate their own path.
