I grew up dancing and performing in theater. I spent years feeling like there was some "spiritual path" I needed to be on, but couldn't figure out exactly what that looked like. Enter: Yoga and Meditation! I'm fascinated by the human body and all the “woo woo” things to learn about through yoga and beyond. Teaching yoga gives me a creative outlet with sequencing movements to breath and curating playlists that create an arc and ability to dive into the practice. The philosophy allows me the space to question and think critically about my actions, thoughts, reactions and to find more self-love. Yoga also has had a huge influence on my work as a doula and my ability to stay grounded and present while working with birthing people in one of the biggest transitions of life! The tools I’ve learned from my mat and meditation have been integral to how I show up and help in all facets of my life. That all seems very serious but I assure you that at the end of the day I’m probably one of the weirdest people you’ll meet and I love being an ODD goofball!
HOMETOWN: Yuma, AZ
FAVORITE SONG/ARTIST: For now I'll narrow it to: Amanda Palmer, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, radiohead, The Doors, David Bowie, Goldfrapp, Erykah Badu, Gogol Bordello, lots of 90s grunge and hip hop, punk, r&b, and anything else funky and weird I can get my hands on. I really go in so many directions with music.
ODD FACT: I broke my nose when I was a kid by kicking myself in the face when showing my sister how high I could kick. It's still slightly crooked. Flexibility isn't everything ;)
MY STEEZ: In my classes you can expect to work, breathe, laugh and maybe boogie a little to some sweet tunes. I’m all about finding how the practice fits you instead of trying to fit you into a strict yoga mold. Accessibility, consent and bodily autonomy are huge for me! I encourage people to practice with a sense of lightness and to laugh off the harder moments, every fall is a set up for a comeback and some serious growth!
