That you are enough. That falling in love with yourself should be easy. You are exactly where you’re supposed to be, and you are on this beautiful journey called life.
My main mission in life is to give love, teach love and spread love. Seeing you finally “get it” and understand that yoga is so much more than the poses lights me up from the inside out.
Because I want you to feel every ounce of happiness, even in the moments when there’s darkness. I want you to understand that you are EXACTLY where you’re supposed to be. Your journey is your own and even in the moments that don’t feel like rays of sunshine, I’m still here cheering you on….watching you expand through the challenges and holding your heart as you take that leap of faith.
As a teacher, I aim to lead you back to yourself. I aim to give you the room you need to remember the joy you felt as a child. Handstands should be just as exciting now as they were when you were five years old!! Wheel shouldn’t frustrate you, but rather invigorate you as you open your heart and bring more light into your world.
So often we are told what a yoga body looks like: blonde, tattooed, skinny and flexible. We are told we need to sweat, to earn it and to never give up. And while some of those things can be true in the right context, they are not a requirement for yoga.
Simply put, my teachings are that of love. I teach from my heart and try to blend a little bit of all of my knowledge into each class. I talk about ancient sutras, charkas, crystals, love, energy, kundalini and prana. I mix my vinyasa background into my newfound love for prana flow and kundalini. I sprinkle in reiki whenever I can. And I almost always assist in savasana.
I have a love affair with alignment and assists. I am a stickler for hydration and I’ll try to make you laugh with a yoga joke on occasion.
I teach to inspire.
You feeling your best. I want you to sink into your skin and feel comfortable there. I want you to feel healthy and empowered. I want to see you smile. I want to see your energy soar and to fulfill your life’s purpose. I want to see you reach your highest potential and I want to witness your journey.
My lifestyle. My everything. My whole world.
