About the Instructor

I was a freshman in high school when I took my first meditation class and was blown away by the power of it. It wasn't the practice itself, rather, it was how I moved through the world and interacted with my family later that night that impacted me so greatly. I realized that meditation, yoga, and other mindful movement modalities, can create actual positive shifts and this influenced my work in the years to come as a social justice activist, massage therapist, and most recently in my work as a somatic psychotherapist.

I started teaching hatha yoga professionally in 2009, which continues to feed my passion for learning, especially when it comes to the dynamism of the body and mind, relationships, and the healing arts. What gets me most excited about the practice is that it offers opportunities for deep experiential learning, often uncovering and clarifying wisdom that already exists within. As we move through the shapes of asana and cultivate our "somatic architecture" we bring mindfulness to how we physically organize, unwind, and reorganize. In this process we come to understand how our physicality gives rise to and is affected by our mental and emotional states. Habitual patterns surface and opportunities for learning and healing present themselves. The beauty of group yoga classes is that this intimate work gets to happen in the holding of a community. The practice can expand from intra-personal to inter-personal and healing around themes of belonging become possible.

I enjoy teaching various styles of yoga, I am an anatomy geek and love getting into the details of alignment, I think props are the coolest... but most of all I love connecting with my students and supporting their curiosity, wisdom, and empowerment.

About this class:

A grounding, flowing sequence with deep hip and shoulder opening as well as opportunities to sprinkle in challenging postures, such as crow pose and handstand.

Props: 2 blocks and a belt and a blanket (optional). The entire class can be done without props except padding for a your knees; you may want a blanket if they are tender in knee-down lunges. Please also note that the last 15 minutes are cut off, so please do some cooling work and take a rest at the end!
