I began practicing yoga more than ten years ago as a high schooler. Originally drawn to vinyasa and power yoga, my approach to yoga has changed significantly.
As I realized the mental and emotional benefits of yoga, and as I began to practice different styles, my relationship to yoga changed from ‘this is something I do for exercise’ to finding empowerment and helping me create a new relationship with my body and emotional self through the practice. Yin yoga became a key style I delved into, especially during and after my yoga teacher training.
For my classes, I draw inspiration from a mix of styles grounded in trauma-informed teaching approaches to create a class that is accessible and fosters in students a deep connection to their body and breath. I try to teach classes that all bodies feel welcome in, from beginner to more experienced.
Outside of yoga, I listen to an endless amount of podcasts, I love to cook and veganize the classic American foods I grew up with; and am attempting to learn French.
