I have an overwhelming sense of gratitude and passion for yoga. As a teenager it saved my life! Always an extremely active person, you name itÉ I played it. Life as I knew it was altered at the age of 16 by a severe back surgery. Seeking relief from the constant pain, dealing with the effects of a large disfiguring scar, mourning the loss of mobility and flexibility, and seeking a balm for a broken Spirit, I turned to yoga. Through my 10 years of yoga practice I discovered pain relief, self-acceptance, peace of mind, and the knowing I am not just my physical body but truly a spark of love. Perfect, whole and complete just as I am right now. My desire is to nurture that inner knowing with all whom I share the beautiful practice of yoga. I graduated from Cal Poly with a degree in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism and completed my 200-hour Teacher Training program through the San Luis Obispo Yoga Center in 2012. I currently work as an E-RYT, Certified SUP Yoga Teacher, and Registered Massage Therapist on the Central Coast. I look forward to sharing this journey of self-discovery as we learn and grow together.
