I first discovered yoga when I walked into a free class on a whim while still in college. Having a background in martial arts and gymnastics, I was immediately drawn to the physically demanding aspects of the practice. Not long after establishing a regular asana practice I began to recognize its potential for healing and self-discovery. I believe that the strength, flexibility, and balance cultivated in the body can be reflected in the mind.
Every time one steps onto the yoga mat, there is the opportunity for growth and greater understanding of the self, both physically and spiritually. The more we come to understand ourselves, the more we can act in accordance with our true nature, instead of living in repression and inauthenticity.
I have studied extensively with Ana Forrest, completing both the 200-hour Foundational and Advanced trainings, as well as a 200-hour vinyasa training through Back Bay Yoga in Boston. I have also studied Budokon Yoga with Cameron Shayne and am working towards my certification in that style. In my classes I strive to offer a platform upon which students can explore and develop a heightened sense of body awareness.
