I am a 200 hour certified Hatha yoga teacher and teach at two studios in San Francisco’s Marina district. While completing my training in Charleston, South Carolina I was influenced by the philosophy and practices of Jivamukti Yoga http://jivamuktiyoga.com/about/philosophy I learned the importance of balance between mind and body and spirit.
I teach a vinyasa style of yoga – a moving meditation linking postures with the breath – which is a vigorous, power yoga class with an emphasis on fun and flexibility. Influenced by sequencing and breath work of Jivamukti yoga and the power element of Baron Baptiste, my sequencing is designed to strengthen and tone the muscles of your body and mind, and is sure to take you to your edge. I believe in the connection of music and movement to open the body and the mind.
I am also a certified nutrition and wellness coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. As a result, my personal yoga practice has grown into a passion for the health and welI-being of others. I try to use humor and down-to-earth sentimentality to illuminate aspects of the spiritual journey in a hectic world. My goal is to put those practicing at ease and encourage them to try new things to improve their practice, on and off the mat.
