My inspirational teachers are my father, Erich Schiffmann, Sarah Powers, Paul Grilley, Erika Trice, and Nikki Estrada. I am also inspired by my love of freedom, grace, creativity, and an urge to express unbridled joy!
Why I Practice
I have been practicing yoga my entire life. My father and I would practice sun salutations before school which inspired my love of yoga, fluid movement, and dance throughout my life. My personal practice now is devotional, meditative, and more like praying with my body.
Why I Teach
One of my teachers said, "A yoga teacher is a yoga student so full of the love of yoga that it just has to overflow." Yeah, that is why I teach.
