As a Yoga Teacher my main goal is to help heal the body and mind while guiding you through truly meaningful experiences. Teaching in Austin, Texas, I incorporate a variety of traditional practices in movement, breath, and meditation to help each student practice their own unique form of yoga. Are you ready to make a positive change in your lifestyle?

My Story

Yoga found me at the moment I decided to take care of myself for the first time in my life. I had always taken care of others but I didn't have a clue on how to do that for myself. Riddled with chronic pain, health conditions, emotional trauma and a series of devastating losses; somehow I ended up on a yoga mat. What I experienced in class that day transformed my life. And what I continued to experience off of my mat created a deep passion to share this life changing practice with others.

 

When I first started, my body was so broken that I couldn't even be on my hands and knees without pain. I modified poses and used props to make postures accessible for my body. I learned that I couldn't rush my healing, that it wasn't helpful to beat myself up or compare myself to others. Before I knew it, my chronic pain was a thing of the past. No longer was I getting migraines several times a week, I wasn't throwing my back out anymore, my carpal tunnel healed, that knot I had in my back since I was a kid was suddenly gone, the stresses of everyday life didn't get to me like they always had, I actually SLEPT, I was better able to manage grief, depression & anxiety. Even my ADHD symptoms improved. But, the greatest perk was that I started to learn what happiness and self love truly was. And all that just scratches the surface on the gifts yoga has given me personally.

If I can do this. You absolutely can. We all have our own triumphs and tragedies. We all have our own stories and your yoga practice will be unique to you. I think of yoga teachers more like shamans. We are simply guiding and supporting you through the experience. How you craft and wield it is completely up to you. Let's begin your journey.
