While my Asana practice only began about 15 years ago I feel like the underlying teachings of “living yoga’ have been a part of my life as long as I can remember. In the last decade I have had the honor to further my study, practice, and teaching under the guidance of amazing teachers like Ryan Leier, Seane Corn, Father Joe Pereira (Iyengar Yoga), Baron Baptiste, Srivatsa Ramaswami (Vinyasa Krama), Leslie Kaminoff, Jess Robertson, and Ted Grand…among others. To these teachers, I bow in humility and gratitude.
I believe that the practice of yoga transcends the physical postures and deepens our relationship to our mind, our breath, and our personal understanding of God. My intention is to share a depth of practice that embodies a form of prayer and allows every practitioner to connect to something beyond the physical aspects of the practice. I aim continuously to create a space that is accessible to all—regardless of their faith, age, or physical limitations.
With mindful, intentional movements I bring a fresh and powerful dimension to today’s yoga class that helps bridge the gap between the pure essence of Yoga and today’s disconnected world. At the foundation of my teaching is not the breath, but one’s relationship to the breath. In this we discover that no posture, no transition, no moment is ever the same; we discover what it means to live in the present moment—this is where we discover Genuine Love.
