Yoga is my favorite thing to talk about. I got hooked back in 2004. I started teaching in 2014. I came to yoga on accident, and I stay because my mat is the place I most frequently meet my best self.
When I teach, humor is my crutch, so the odds are pretty good you'll laugh in my classes, but my priority is helping my students craft and keep a healthy body, so I emphasize safety through alignment and breath awareness. I'm pretty proud of the fact that my encouragement helps students see how badass they are. Keep coming back to the mat and you find that rad stuff is waiting—balance, strength, awareness, play, courage, things like that.
I'm a yoga student first and a teacher second. My practice is my partner in being good at living and teaching yoga makes me more useful than I'd otherwise be. Teaching you ups my game. So thanks.
