Yoga brings me to life. Life takes me back to yoga.
My yoga practice is an expansive reflection of all I am, and while sometimes it is difficult to hold the space of an instructor and teacher-of-teachers, I humbly step-up to the task every day. The learning never stops in this career, and that’s why I love it.
I am dedicated to spiritual growth, awakening, and honoring the yoga tradition. My teaching philosophy is most influenced by Embodied Flow with Tara Judelle and Dr. Scott Lyons, and the Shaiva Tantra Lineage translated by Christopher Hareesh Wallis. My posture practice is an anatomically aware, organic exploration of matter, time, and space rooted in flowing-movement, with inspiration from Tara Judelle, Meghan Currie, and Timothy Sullivan. I love to explore muscles, bones, and fascia in my class, educated through study with Casey Easton, Tiffany Cruikshank, Jason Crandall, and Paul Grilley.
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. Each class shares potent, transformational yoga-centric themes and trauma-informed, body-positive, gender-neutral language.
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 also lead online yoga & barre classes for Alo Moves. I’ve led over 10 yoga teacher training programs, have over 4,000 in-class hours, and my sweet spot is facilitating the art of teaching to yoga instructors.
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.
