What led you to become a Yoga instructor?
I wanted to be a yoga instructor for years, but always seemed to find an excuse to put it off. I’m so happy that I finally just did it and became an instructor. Yoga has been a balm for my soul through so many different times in my life – it brings me back to my true self and allows me the space to be creative and open to new adventure.

What is your favorite thing about teaching?
I’m endlessly grateful to be able to share my passion for yoga with my students – I want them to find their own version of adventure, passion, creativity, and love on the mat so they can bring it off the mat and into the world. I think that is probably one of my favorite things about teaching – sharing yoga and watching students grow in their own yoga practice. It’s so exciting to see the passion for yoga light up in students!
What pose challenges you the most right now?
The yoga pose challenging me most right now is probably forearm stand. I have tight shoulders and some days it can be a true challenge to get myself into the pose, but I keep working at it slowly and consistently – always giving my shoulders lots of love in the process!
Where would you most like to travel, and why?
I’ve been blessed to be able to travel a lot and live abroad at different times in my life, but two places I’ve always wanted to go and still haven’t gotten to are Antarctica and the Sahara desert. They are polar opposites and extremes, but both are deserts and I am captivated by long, seemingly endless stretches of land. To me, they represent a type of freedom and abandon – you can spend years (if you wanted!) exploring their endless mysteries and never really get to see it all – in a way I think that’s a type of yoga for me – the endless exploration.
Outside of teaching, what do you like to do for fun?
I love to travel, eat delicious food, run, do the yoga, and spend as much time at the beach as possible!
What is one thing about you that most people don’t know?
One thing a lot of people don’t know about me is that I’m a Southern California native – I grew up in San Diego and have an undying love for fish tacos, Mexican beer, surf, sand, and fun! 🙂
