When I was a little girl my father had a yoga studio in Marina Del Rey, California. You'd think it was in the blood, but truthfully the yoga bug didn't take on right away. I think I giggled throughout my first class, and maybe even my second and third. Fortunately by my fourth yoga class I started to have clarity that I had never experienced before. It wasn't to long before my love for yoga finally, beautifully, consumed my body and my soul. My eyes began to widen. I wanted to learn everything about it. When I decided to get my certification, my baby brother suggested that if I wanted to take it seriously I should learn where it all started. So off to India I went.
Naive, excited and not knowing what to expect for the first time, I was completely out of my comfort zone. Getting on the plane I felt myself having a mini panic attack. The anticipation of following my dreams was frightening and exhilarating all at once. I imagine the experience was not unlike a sheltered child going away to summer camp for the first time.
I flew down to Goa, where I did my first 200 hour teacher training with Tarun Agrawal, owner of Kranti Yoga. I believed I learned more about life in that one month in India than I did in 12 years of grammar school.
Over the years I've studied with a variety of teachers including Natale Ferreira, Morgan Lee, and Mark Robberds. Not long after that I completed Yogaworks Bridge Program with Malachi Greves, and full 500 hour program with my mentor Calvin Corzine.
As a student, I enjoy practicing many different styles of yoga. My classes are a blend of what I practice ( Ashtanga, and Vinyasa Flow) I teach to share the many benefits of yoga so that students feel empowered and connected.
Today you can find me at Sender One LAX, 24hr Fitness Manhattan Beach, and Yogaworks. I live in Hermosa Beach, trying desperately to get my two cuddly cats to do downward dog (:
