Why do you love teaching yoga?
To me, yoga is an act of all inclusive, all encompassing LOVE. Teaching yoga, to me, is teaching LOVE! I love teaching yoga because I love LOVE. That may sound cliche & warrants an eye roll, but if you know me, I love fiercely. The act of service I am to be in the world is offering love to anyone that is ready to receive.
9 Years ago I said, "YES" to YTT. 2 Years before YTT, I walked into my first yoga class. I fell in love with what yoga gave me, the feeling of complete acceptance to love myself wholly & completely. Love is love.
What can students expect to experience in your class?
A blend of traditional yoga meets 21st century yoga. As a teacher who meets each student where they are in their practice, the level is accessible to all. Wether you are new to yoga or an experienced yogi, you will find each of my classes to be welcoming, inspiring & full of little golden nuggets to take with you off the mat.
What is the greatest benefit of yoga?
To know thyself.
Personal statement of Diversity/Inclusivity/Social Justice: What underrepresented community are you passionate about or a part of?
As a queer member of the LGBTQ+ community, it is my passion to create a safe & sacred space for all to feel welcome. Another community that is dear to my heart is the Mental Health communities across the world. In 2016 I was diagnosed with Bipolar 1, & the stigma of mental health in America is a very real conversation. As a yoga, meditation, bodywork practitioner it is in my blood to directly speak to this community from a personal experience of how important being mindful is for our life. Finally, as an advocate for social justice, diversity & inclusivity I support all communities that speak to Peace, Justice & Sustainability.
