There’s a lot more to being a yoga instructor than just guiding students through a class. It’s about a practice not only with the physical asanas, but a practice of lessons, challenges and balance from the outside world to invert internally. Each student has a story and it’s my journey to help each student learn that story on a deeper level. I offer a place for students to feel safe in their exploration of their self, and to enjoy a practice that goes beyond. I teach so my students feel their own strength within, and to bring that strength to the world with compassion and love. Let’s live in a world of Love starting with YOGA! I’ve been practicing for over 10 years and yoga has brought more to my life than I ever thought it would.  I originally started my journey unintentionally as the Universe always has a path for us. I had a knee injury from running, and I was looking for an alternative workout to heal and stay fit. I was introduced to Hot Yoga in Las Vegas, NV where the community, and classes healed my injury. I continued my practice in Los Angeles, CA and took my first 200YTT training in 2012. My training included; Yoga Therapy, Vinyasa, Meditation, Ayurveda and the Yoga Sutras. Learning from such an inspiring Guru, I continued my practice and furthered my education. I took various Workshops, classes, and meditations to expand and grow. Today I am 500RYT certified, 200RYT , & 95RCYT with a Level 1 Thai Yoga Massage, 25 CEU Yin Yoga, & Reiki Level 1. Since 2018, I have lived in Iowa, and I teach for two different studios teaching various yoga styles and workshops. I travel to Los Angeles, and around the world to expand my knowledge in Yoga techniques and meditation. I co-host yoga retreats internationally with Lotus Retreats since 2019. And since COVID-19 I’ve expanded my teachings virtually through Zoom, Live IG, and YouTube. I thrive on teaching, it’s my passion, and I love learning more about health, fitness, and various classes/techniques. I believe it’s my purpose to share my knowledge & passions with others to give back to the community in anyway I can.
