“I first started to practice yoga for the body and life I wish I had. Now I practice to feel good in the body and life I already posses.”
My goal as a teacher is to support integrity, fearlessness, and truth; all to serve your heart and your relationships. This dynamic work will enable you to better empathize with your hearts, laugh while facing adversity, and activate your dreams into reality.
