Physical movement is an activity that has always made me feel at
home. With over 20 years of dance experience (hip-hop & ballet)
movement allows me to express myself more dynamically and
creatively than any other art form.
However, my yoga journey did not begin until after having my son
in 2018. After giving birth, I wanted to return to an active
lifestyle that respected the physical and mental recovery process I
was experiencing. I then noticed this ancient practice had offered
me tools to cope with personal trauma through working with energy
and practicing spiritual principles. I wanted to share this with
people! In October of 2019, I pursued my 200-hour yoga

For me, yoga means coming back to who we were before the
world/society screwed us up. Learning the things that we are

“We Chant, We Learn, We Move!” is my mantra for what to expect
from my classes. We discuss yoga philosophy, explore somatic
movement, breathwork and mudras to synchronize the energetic body.
Followed by meditation techniques to seal the bond between the
mind, body, and spirit.
