Born and raised in Southern California, I began my yoga journey in High School at a studio down the street from my house. It was in California where I received my 200 hour Power yoga certification (2012).
Soon after, I moved to Fort Collins in order to go to Colorado State University and obtain my degree in Nutrition. I continued teaching yoga at various studios in Colorado, including: Corepower Yoga, Mindstream Yoga, various athletic clubs, and for corporate wellness programs.
My classes vary depending on the time of year, energy in the classroom, and type of studio. I enjoy fusing Vinyasa style classes with Hatha and Ashtanga elements. My students describe me as light-hearted, energetic, and approachable. I try to make sure each person in the room is having his or her own personalized experience, while bringing the awareness back to connecting with each other. You can always expect Prana and self-study to be at the heart of my classes.
Aside from teaching yoga, I work as a plant-based chef. While my work/food tends to be vegan, I focus more on hyper-locality and feeding to nourish one’s own body type and needs. One of my favorite parts of traveling is discovering the interesting ways other cultures utilize plants and medicinal foods within their everyday lives.
I have spent time traveling in Mexico, Central america, South America, the Caribbean, Europe, Thailand, India, and around the U.S.
It is a dream of mine to open a yoga studio that offers classes in both English and Spanish, as well as low cost/free community classes.
Currently traveling in India
