I am a Californian, but I have been living and teaching abroad for the past 7 years. Teaching yoga? Actually, kindergarten! I want to change my life’s focus to yoga. I feel so much happier, calmer and more alive when I am doing yoga and meditation. I completed my RYT 200 in Hatha Yoga at Yoga Barn in Ubud with High Vibe Yoga. I accepted a volunteer position in Nicaragua for September through December. I am currently looking for another teaching position for January and February. I am planning on taking a 500 RYT course in India in March. I look forward to continuing to practice teaching yoga. I want to become the best yoga instructor I can be. I have a lot of enthusiasm and passion for sharing yoga.

A Little More About Me
Experience & Qualifications
Hatha Yoga or Restorative Yoga
I have been doing yoga for over a decade in my own time, but I am ready to recognize it as a greater force in my life.
I have taught daily yoga classes as a volunteer at Casa Oro in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua from September to November 2016. It was so fun to teach yogis from all around the world, many of them for their first class! The proceeds of these sessions benefited the local sea turtles. I incorporated hatha asana, pranayama, meditation and some relaxing restorative poses.
In Myanmar, I taught community classes on the roof of my apartment building from November 2016 to May 2017. We practiced meditation, asana and pranayama as the sun set over the rice paddies to the west.
From December 2016 to May 2017, I also taught at a local gym in Mandalay. Students there were a mix of local Myanmar and expats. It was a humbling experience to teach through the language barrier.
From January 2017-May 2017 I also taught my kindergarten students yoga. It was so fun to try to bring the poses and mindfulness to a level that was accessible to 5-year olds. It was a great way to look into the essence of yoga.
