- Yoga Instructor, US Director of Operations
It all began when I took a month off from work to pursue my dream of traveling to the Himalayas. I fell deeply in love with Nepal. It was here that my spirit was awakened. It was here that I discovered a deep sense of peace and a passion for this land that has called me to share ever since. For as long as I can remember I have loved to explore. This sense of wanderlust has led me all over the world, and it is such a great joy for me to share this adventure with others! Through travel, I have found that you learn a great deal about yourself, so yoga retreats offer a unique opportunity to become deeply curious about yourself and grow beyond self-limiting beliefs.
I am an E-RYT 200, and 500 RYT, which I completed through Moksha Yoga in Chicago. I am also a certified meditation teacher and bring this grounding to all of my classes. The study of yoga is an endless pursuit of wonder for me, and I am always in awe of the deeper meanings that are revealed as the layers of our own self-limiting beliefs are peeled away.
No matter what the setting, in my teachings, you can expect to work with the breath creating space to allow the mind to let go, a physical practice to move from a space of thinking to one of being, where you can release the areas of tension that develop from habitual patterns, and lastly you can expect a perfectly imperfect space. I understand we all arrive on our mats with different life stories, but whatever your story, you have the power to transform your way of thinking, feeling, and being.
