"I see yoga as a daily practice of surrendering to the power of now and honoring one’s truth. My inspiration and creativity come from a life fueled by love, truth, courage and the journey of acceptance and trust. I believe in the value of conscious movement that cultivates strength, flexibility and awareness.
I believe in magic.
I love storytelling, fairy tales, mythology, mudra, mantra and all elements of the subtle pranic body system. I playfully explore these concepts in my Vinyasa and Yin classes hoping to inspire curiosity about the body and invite an internal feeling of awakening.
My students can expect to be led through intelligent sequences of postures, gain an insight into the power of mudras and build deeper communication between the body, spirit and mind.”
