I draw inspiration from the many wonderful teachers who have helped me grow as a student. My asana and teaching practices are also informed by the writings of Buddhist teachers, including Chögyam Trungpa and Pema Chödrön. Their work has helped me better understand mindfulness and how we can apply that awareness to movement.
Why I Practice
I practice to learn. That learning is the foundation of my teaching as well as my life outside the studio. Each time I visit my mat, I foster skills that help me better connect to myself and those around me. In short, I learn to pay attention.
Why I Teach
I teach to share my passion for yoga and to help others learn the skills that the practice yields.
