about me


My yoga journey began in 2011, when I was in in college and found myself in not the best mental health. I was suffering from depression and de-prioritizing my physical and mental health, with the idea that if I worked harder everything would turn out fine. This moment in my life brought me to yoga, where I have become more aware of the balance between effort and ease. Since then, I have practiced yoga, but only dove into the practice through my teacher training, which I completed in May 2017. I had the privilege of learning under some of the best teachers, including Patrick Franco, Julie Pasqual, Anna Greenberg and Lindsey Rozmes.

what to expect


I approach yoga as more than physical - a practice that allows us to connect our physical movement with our mind. Yoga creates a space that has no judgment. My teaching style is vinyasa flow, informed by the iyengar tradition. My musical selections range from energetic and upbeat, to abstract.

other passions


When I'm not doing yoga, I love to play golf and do road biking. I'm intellectually curious and love to travel abroad, where I try to eat my way through the cuisines of different cultures.
