I am a teacher, dancer, and artist based in Seattle. I began practicing yoga in my early teens, and it has been a part of my life ever since.
My first formal yoga training was in Seattle in 2006 with Richard Schachtel at the Center for Yoga of Seattle, an Iyengar studio. At the Center for Yoga I learned the art of alignment and discipline. From 2007-2008 I studied Vinyasa with Shiva Rea in Seattle, San Francisco and India. My experience with Shiva taught me to open up my sequences to a more creative flow. In 2011 I returned to San Francisco for training in Kids and Teens Yoga with Michelle Wing at It’s Yoga Kids. More recently I trained as a Barre instructor with Tricia Madden at Denali Fitness in Seattle.
I draw influence in my classes from all my teachers. Yoga is not a closed form of movement. It is accepting and accessible to all abilities. I continue to value the applications and connections that yoga brings to all aspects of my life.
