Yoga is a tool for growth, equality, and change. There is nothing more important than that at this point in time. With the present fight for racial and gender equality yoga is a tool for social justice, for those who have not had a voice to begin to be heard, and for the forward progression of our society towards true and lasting equality.

Yoga is so much more than just the physical poses. There are 8 limbs of Yoga, and Asana is just one. The philosophy behind Yoga teaches us that we can literally change the world if we understand how it works. Its so much about ourselves and how everything is a reflection of us. And if that’s true, then why wouldn’t we love our reflections. The Beatles had it right when they said “All you need is Love”.

I call myself a modern vinyasa teacher. I will always love the elements of breath and flow, yet my evolution has been toward including more functional movement as well as more emphasis on embodiment. I don't adhere to one style or lineage. I developed Embodied Posture Methodology as a form of practice that emphasizes functional and relevant movement through increased self-awareness.

Just Like Om, Founder
New York City, NY 

Growing up in Seattle, I was always very active, I grew up practicing martial arts. I moved to Los Angeles in 2007 to attend FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising). In LA, I fell in love with yoga although I didn’t consider it as a career until I moved to NYC.  After completing my Yoga certification I began exploring other areas of wellness that I was drawn to and it led to my specialization in pre/postnatal and injury recovery.
