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.

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.

My mission is to lead with love but above all things to be a true leader in the community. I serve up a strong practice that is mentally and physically challenging and I always mirror the practice to our life circumstances. My classes fill up in seconds and are filled with people from all walks of life and backgrounds. When you walk into my room you are greeted like family and are expected to be a part of the community.

Alo Yoga, Bandier
Los Angeles, CA

My practice and teaching style is heavily influenced by vinyasa, but breaks all the "rules" of yoga. I combine sculpt movements with HIIT, yoga flows, meditation and breathwork so my students can achieve a well-rounded workout and mindfulness practice in just one class alone. Too much of one thing is never good for the body (or the mind).
