It’s no secret that I love dipping into power classes around the globe. Moving my body energizes me. Working on a peak pose creates focus, I can’t help but be present. It takes effort and discipline to carve out an hour or two for my own yoga practice and I want it to count. I like to earn my savasana! If I use my physical body to its full potential, I sleep hard at night. Moving from distraction to direction requires “movement “of some kind. I understand that my practice will inevitably shift but for now I want to ride that wave as long as I can.

My yoga journey has been all about discovery. I approach my yoga practice with a playful curiosity. Being open to a variety of teachers and yoga styles keeps me walking through that door, because I don’t really know what I will find on the other side. Walking through that door has led me deep into the jungle adjusting students with monkeys howling at us in the trees, has led me upside down “down-under”, has led me to swing in an aerial class holding hands with New Yorkers, wound so tight they had to be told to stay for savasana, to a gong meditation in the desert, to meditating high on a mountain top, to being passionate about teaching yoga on a paddle board for the last three summers! I will never stop being a student of the world, and want to soak up as much fun as I can every day.
