About Me:

Rather than popping pills, I view yoga as my medicine. When I was eighteen I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Years of trying out different Western approaches, including surgery, proved to not be a long term solution. When I started practicing yoga my whole well-being became balanced and I learned to thrive!

I now share yoga with others to enhance their lives from the mat to work to family life and beyond.

I have completed my 500-hr training with Eoin and the Blissology Yoga School. The reverence of nature and community that embody Blissology philosophy influence every facet of my teachings.

My studies in movement go beyond yoga into tai chi, capoeira, Movement Flow, barre, gymnastics, and calisthenics. I love to infuse inspiration from each of these modalities into my classes.


My life mission:

Optimize the Human Spirit


My favorite podcast:

Tim Ferriss Podcast, Joe Rogan Experience, Guru Killer, Awake In The World, Hardcore History (that's one right haha)

One quote to live by:

Life and death are of supreme importance.
Time passes swiftly and opportunity is lost.
Let us awaken.
Awaken!
Do not squander your life.
- Dogen

Favorite ALDP song:

I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler - YACHT

Book I like to re-read:

Harry Potter...of course

My spirit animal:

Dragon. I feel a fierce, yet peaceful essence of the dragon spirit within me stemming back to my Japanese heritage.
