My yoga journey...
I started my yoga practice in the late 90's, while living in Singapore and in Bangkok, Thailand. Inspired by the diverse instructors that I encountered in Southeast Asia, I studied to become a Registered Yoga Teacher upon my return to the USA. I continue my yogic educational journey and am now an E-RYT 200 and an E-RYT 500 with the Yoga Alliance and a Certified Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists. I am working toward my 900 hour Yoga for Healthcare certification through YogaFit, the largest yoga school in North America. I have received numerous specialty certifications and workshops along the way. I love the fusion of ancient yogic wisdom and modern fitness principles and strive to create an inclusive, eclectic and inspiring yoga experience.
