I am a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher at the Intermediate Junior 1 level.  I received my initial training into the Iyengar Yoga method through Heather Haxo Phillips at Adeline Yoga Studio in Berkeley, California. In addition, I have studied extensively with senior Iyengar Yoga teachers Carrie Owerko, Lois Steinberg and Carolyn Belko.  Through the synthesis of my learning from such diverse, skillful and compassionate teachers I bring a dynamic blend of power, precision and play into my practice and teaching.

Since teaching my first class at the San Quentin Prison, I served as a devoted teacher of the Prison Yoga Project where I taught every week for over six years. During my time of living in the Bay Area, I also taught at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco as well as YogaWorks studios in Marin. 

By creatively expressing my passion for Iyengar Yoga on social media, I built a following online by presenting short practice videos accompanied with fun music. My online demonstrations through DIY (do-it-yourself) style videos have encouraged and engaged a broad spectrum of enthusiastic practitioners. Many of these videos are viewed and shared by yoga communities around the world. I currently call Los Angeles home base as I passionately travel across the globe to teach workshops in different countries.
