 I Founded O.Y.B May 9th 2020 so that we may continue to practice together during the Covid restrictions. I love going to the park and connecting with people through breath and  movement. Teaching yoga helps me facilitate mindfulness for the purpose of emotional self-management and serenity. It is an integral part of my recovery that I wish to share. This program gives me purpose and lets me be of service. My classes are energetic, dynamic and silly. Email me here for private yoga packages and personalized practices.

High energy and laughter are just a few qualities that are evident in my yoga classes. I have taught classes both inside and out of yoga studios. I like to bring attention to the breath, technique, and balance during my yoga classes. My teaching philosophy is that practicing yoga is equivalent to practicing self-respect. Full attention to alignment and light-hearted fun are part of my  life and yoga classes. I like to bring a sense of calm and  inspire to create a safe space for my students allowing them to have freedom in their bodies. In addition to teaching, I am also a certified doula and I work with mothers both during labor and postpartum. I like to weave my  childbirth knowledge into my prenatal yoga classes. Encouraging a sense of strength and ease, I  support my students to open to all of life’s possibilities.

I completed my 200hr Teacher Training through Yoga to the People and I am currently finishing up a 300hr Teacher Training. I was first drawn to yoga as a way to stay active when I injured my knee. After 3 surgeries, yoga is one of the few exercises that makes my body feel good! I love teaching yoga so that students can feel connected to their breath and body. I make my sequences challenging with room for modifications and variations to suit your practice.

I teach an alignment-based hatha vinyasa flow that involves a blend of dynamism and stillness evocative of our experience of life. My classes are friendly for all levels, beginner through advanced. In 2018, I spent 6 months studying asana, mediation, and bodywork in India, where I got my yoga teacher certification. My classes are woven with the wisdom of modern and ancient yoga philosophy, as well as my Thai Yoga Massage practice and Shamanic Studies background. I believe yoga holds the door to transcend to a more authentic version of ourselves. Free your spirit and flow with me! I can't wait to see you on the mat.

Living the dual life of yoga teacher and musician has inspired me to combine the lyrical and rhythmic aspects of music with the breathing and body movements of my yoga students. I love the teaching process, and strive to help my students find peace, strength and harmony in their practices.

I am passionate about inspiring others to discover the physical, spiritual, and mental benefits of yoga - and, simply, to thrive. My Classes are welcoming, grounding, and challenging, with a focus on building strength from within. Inspired by many teachers and a wide variety of themes, I invite students to empower their minds throughout class by bringing all attention to the present moment without judgement or expectation, leading to an overall enhanced sense of well being.I am currently pursuing an additional 300 hour Training with Janet Stone Yoga in San Francisco.

I am a  200 hour RYT, Qigong Practitioner, and Creative Movement Instructor offering integrative classes that facilitate the mind-body connection.  As a traveler with a background in the arts, yoga has remained an inner home I carry wherever I go.  I encourage students to explore movement through imagination, curiosity, and playfulness.

Yoga offers me strength: physical, emotional, and spiritual.

I have been sharing this through the years by teaching slow yoga flow that

Is a form of moving meditation. With our yoga movements in class,  we explore

modifications that work for every body.  No matter where you now are in your yoga journey, I invite you to join me in a mindful yoga flow.

A lover of movement whether it is boogieing in the grocery aisles, dance floor or on the yoga mat. Creating different shapes with my body has and continues to be one of the things that I treasure most in life. Being in spaces watching and helping others find shapes has only intensified this love. I’m a 200hr trained vinyasa teacher that believes the only things you need to “do” yoga is the willingness to explore and the willingness to be kind to yourself. Everything else will find its place. When I’m not bouncing to a tune or teaching yoga, you can catch mesomewhere belting out an old school R n B song, fawning over my 2 pups, loving up on some good coffee, drawing on things. I’m excited to be a new addition to OutdoorYogaBerkeley, join me for a Vinyasa Flow on alternate Thursdays. Disclaimer: I cannot promise there won’t be a lame joke or two but do expect some dance breaks during class!!

To evoke moments of body bliss for you to feel safe and grounded in your body is my WHY. The approach I take with yoga is a dynamic and therapeutic vinyasa flow that strengthens and opens your being. Combining education and experiences as a counselor and trauma informed yoga instructor, I offer cognitive and emotional insights as you move through a physical practice that helps connect the whole. Yoga is humanity experienced holistically.

For me, yoga should feel like dancing - creative, playful, therapeutic, and fun. At first, I was drawn to the physical practice, but I believe yoga is less about the poses, and more about deepening your relationship with yourself. In my practice, I like to focus on alignment, breathwork, flexibility, and strength. My teaching style is primarily power vinyasa, with elements of hatha and yin. I did my 200hr teacher training with YTTP in San Francisco in 2020, and I’ve taught in Uganda, Costa Rica, and in the Bay Area.

For me, yoga is a practice of exploring and maintaining the mind and body connection as I continue to seek grace and peace in life. My vinyasa classes blend physical alignment and core strength in a fluid rhythm. I emphasize breath awareness and conscious intention to promote ease and stability in each pose as we challenge our minds and bodies through practice. I want us all to find and maintain a peaceful mind and body on and off the mat. I extend an invitation to practice alongside one another on our journeys to seek our purpose, find human connectivity, and show ourselves self-compassion.
