Who Am I?

I’m just a simple seeker, on a path towards understanding myself, my world, and my higher power.  There is no perfection on my path, I’m just a regular person, living a regular life, trying to practice yoga and sharing the teachings that inspire me most.

I practice what I teach and I share my shortcomings too – this is not a glossy, yoga blog airbrushed and edited, it’s just me, full on, real life, mistakes and all.  Sometimes I get it “right,” most times I don’t – I’m practicing my potential.

I’ve trained and I keep training – the training never ends. Student first and always. The moment a teacher loses the personal practice, they must stop teaching. This my friends, is one reason I’ve opted to release all studio, drop-in classes. I need more time to practice so that I’m the best teacher I can be for you. You will find me hosting ocassional series classes, workshops, and can contact me for private lessons. I’m interested in teaching students who are interested in more than just a physical practice.
