Yoga was first introduced to me when I was about 16. My mom, on a journey to heal her body from cancer, found Yoga. Even as a moody teenager doing my best to dislike everything, I couldn’t deny the positive shifts I saw in her life. I remember thinking maybe I would like to help others heal their bodies naturally… but not until I’m, like, in my 60’s. But of course I did not and could not wait that long!
In the spring of 2017, I realized that the career path I was on was not healthy for me and I felt that I was not creating a positive impact on the world. So that summer, I made the decision to leave my job in film and travel to a self-sustaining eco-village just north of Mumbai, India. At this village, I completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training in Hatha Yoga, repairing my relationship with my body, making spiritual discoveries and learning how to impart my knowledge of yoga onto others.
It is truly my belief that in our natural states, we are content, joyful, loving (to others and ourselves) and peaceful. But through our lives we endure traumas and misunderstandings. I believe the baggage we collect from the experiences we are not able to fully process, hinder us from recognizing our true state of being. This is why I love teaching and practicing yoga and meditation. It brings us back to who we really are.
Come to my classes to slow down and let go of your baggage, worries, stress and anxieties; to forge a loving relationship with yourself; to take care of your body; and most importantly, to remember how amazing you already are!
