Power. Beauty. Grace.  These are the guiding principles of my teaching. Power comes from building core strength, aligning bones, and stabilizing joints. Beauty arises in the exquisiteness of each pose and the joy that naturally occurs in the practice. Grace happens in the dance of breath and movement and the seamless flow of one posture into the next.  

The yogic path is one of awakening and liberation. From a place of integrity, personal experience and a deep desire to walk the yogic path, I support my students in their evolution. With 26 years of practice experience, 12 years of teaching experience, and a MA in Psychology, I bring a depth of understanding, wisdom and compassion to my teaching. I encourage playful fascination and exploration of the body. My classes are creative and joyful focusing on development of core stabilization, mindfulness of breath, precision in postures, and the slow, steady building of strength and flexibility through intelligent, thoughtful sequencing.


I attended my first 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) in 2001 with Ana Forrest.  I began teaching in early 2002 in Santa Barbara, CA where I honed my teaching skills for nine years. Over that time I became certified in Pre-Natal Yoga (2006), acquired a MA in Clinical Psychology (2007), licensed as a Massage Therapist (2007), and attended my second 200 hour YTT in Bali with Vinyasa teacher, Vidya Jacqueline Heisel through Frog Lotus Yoga (2010).  In addition I have studied with Baron Baptiste in Boston, Cyndi Lee of Om Yoga in NYC, and Shiva Rea in LA. I continued my studies in San Francisco where I acquired a 150 hour certificate in Yoga Philosophy and History through the California Institute of Integral Studies in 2011 as well as a 500 hour YTT certification with Janet Stone in 2012.
