Yoga brings me to life. Life takes me back to yoga.

I moved to Seattle without knowing this city or knowing a soul. The stars aligned in my favor, as they do when you follow your heart, and I began teaching at a handful of brand new studios that all began to flourish, defining a new wave of athletic, musical yoga in Seattle.

My yoga style evolved and blossomed, and it still shifts and changes daily. I am most inspired by Embodied Flow with Tara Judelle and Scott Lyons, and by the tantra philosophy shared by Christopher Hareesh Wallis.

I call what I teach “creative and intelligent vinyasa flow.” For short, I’ve settled on: “spirit flow.” It is a unique and powerful class that combines rhythmic, dancey breath-led movement with structured anatomical opening for a peak posture.

My fluid yet pragmatic style is challenging, inspiring and enrapturing. I am fiercely dedicated to intuitive and flowing movement, and I delight in the challenge to choreograph beautiful, intelligent transitions. 

Ultimately, though, I am an entrepreneur at heart. I love to challenge conformity and envision new possibilities. I created the barre method for and the vision behind Bohemian Studios, and I built and lead The Craft of Teaching Yoga training programs. I’ve led over 10 yoga teacher training programs, have over 4,000 in-class hours, and relish in the art of teaching teachers.

Yoga is the underscore of everything in my life, and because of that, I cannot help but share it with anyone who crosses my path.
