I aim to help people advance their yoga practice by taking it off the mat and into their daily lives to become free from external and internal limits to realize their true nature.


I believe yoga is a self-psychology technology that changes our lives by shifting our identity & reality so we can rest more in our true nature that is peaceful, joyful, fearless, and expansive.


I love to share yoga by combining my Western and Eastern trainings to create a blend of the modern Western scientific, psychological, physiological, therapeutic, and functional aspects of yoga with yoga’s more traditional holistic, spiritual, and energetic expressions.

I began practicing yoga in 1997 with a Rodney Yee VHS tape (thank you, Mr. Yee!) that I randomly decided to purchase, never having heard of yoga before. 


My practice continued sporadically at home with VHS and DVDs until I became consistent and started practicing at a studio in 2013 as I sought a physical outlet to replace running.


When a yoga retreat in Nicaragua in 2014 changed my life, I began to experience yoga as more than physical.


The retreat helped me realize how unhappy I was and yet how I felt stuck in a life that I didn't remember choosing.  Yoga helped me reconnect with myself and what I truly wanted and to remember that I am free to create my life. It was on this retreat that I learned to meditate and meditation has been my primary practice of yoga ever since for its life-changing effects.

I went home and took my first yoga teacher training and began the difficult process of leaving a job and relationship that hadn't been aligned for some time.  Throughout, I overcame much conditioning and many inner and outer obstacles in order to leave the societally and parentally approved path to live my dream of living a simple life abroad that I still feel like I'm living each day. Yoga has also helped to free me from a past of anxiety and depression.

As such, out of a background of dabbling in marine biology, exercise physiology, zoology, microbiology, molecular biology, education, and wilderness therapy field guiding—to name a few things—yoga is the thing that has stuck.

It brings me more peace, contentment, and joy everyday during even the 'downs' as well as the 'ups' of life, and it continues to help me expand what I think is possible and get out of my own way—and this is what I wish to share with others!

I love surfing, the speed of slow honey, a simple life lived mostly outdoors, life/self experiments, and learning daily as a constant student and explorer of yoga and life.
