I first came to yoga as a teenager searching for balance from the rigors of classical ballet training. Over the last ten years, I have returned again and again to cultivate inner peace, develop greater self-awareness, and shift my perspective on the world. I completed my 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training at Flow Yoga Center in Washington, DC, and also hold a BA in Public Communication, French, and Dance from American University. I lead a fluid, organic practice with specific focus on breath-initiated movement, safe alignment, and creative sequencing.
My experience as a dancer greatly influences my teaching. As a teacher, I hope my students leave class feeling grounded, at ease, and confident in their own power and grace.
