Nice to meet you!

As a fidgety high school student, I first unrolled my mat next to my mom as she played yoga VHS tapes. Although focus was difficult, the movement and strength in each pose fascinated me. Over the years, I came in and out of a regular practice but always found my way back into the studio. In 2015, after a car accident left me injured, my mat became a place where I could patiently reconnect with my body and mind. It  was during this journey that I knew I was meant to share this practice with others.

After taking a workshop in Chicago, I was immediately inspired by the joy, vibrancy and compassion of Victoria Arvizu. So, with anxious curiosity and nudge from a friend, I traveled to Costa Rica one year later to earn my RYT-200 with High Energy Fusion Yoga®. Seeing the progress of my students and falling in love with the method, I am currently continuing my education to obtain my RYT-500 under the program.

With my background in mobility sequencing, thoughtful structuring and the dynamic blending of yoga’s many forms, my classes are designed to keep you moving, breathing and achieving. On the mat I try to push away from perfection and, instead, embrace the wobbles and tumbles. Despite my natural desire for flawless execution, which stems from my day job in public relations and events, I’ve come to learn that it’s in these moments of imperfection where you will uncover strength, kindness and, of course, a bit of laughter.

That said, there’s nothing I love more than a challenge, whether it’s with a tricky arm balance or in the work of finding stillness in meditation (not easy for a busy body like me!). In my classes, you’ll be invited into a safe, creative atmosphere, complete with vibrant music and the support of your fellow yogis. Whether you’re seeking a powerful vinyasa flow or a restorative practice, you’ll find challenge, compassion and humor, giving you the playground to discover your limitless potential and leave feeling confident, strong and powerful.
