This classes exceeded my expectations. Rachel S. Is an amazing instructor. She attended to my pregnant needs. Will be coming back for more classes.
Yoga can be about the moon-howling, third-eye-finding, soul-searching kind-of stuff. Or, it can be about the physical challenge—the core-strengthening, sweat-dripping, side-planking kind-of stuff. I like to balance both. After rolling out my mat for years, I eventually found myself looking for a way to deepen my practice, which led to attending my first yoga teacher training in 2010: a 200-hour Ashtanga Yoga training with It's Yoga in San Francisco. I've since completed a 50-hour Rocket Training with Ashta Yoga San Francisco and, most recently, a 300-hour Ashtanga Yoga training with Kranti Yoga in Goa India (I'll tell you all about the elephants later). A Las Vegas native, I ended up leaving the mainland for Hawaii in 2010, where I earned my Master's Degree in Global Leadership and Sustainable Development. Though I loved the aloha life, I eventually found my way back to the desert, where I practice, teach and play to this day. When I'm not on my mat, you can find me traveling or hiking with my husband and our two very enthusiastic pitbulls, Louie Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald. I grew up roaming around Red Rock Canyon and am an avid outdoors enthusiast who's fueled by Biggie Smalls, breakfast for dinner and big, blue skies.
