Yoga found me when I was 11 years old. I wandered into a studio down my street and have been down-doggin’ since. At 17 I signed up for my first teacher training at Santa Monica Yoga where I was introduced to my beloved Ashtanga Yoga. At Sarah Lawrence College, I found ballet and modern dance. With confidence to choreograph and create, vinyasa started flowing through me, and we’ve been quite a pair since. Yoga heals and soothes – my practice is my happy place.
HOMETOWN: Redondo Beach, CA
FAVORITE SONG/ARTIST: Heartbeats by the Knife (I like Josè Gonzalez’s cover, too!)
ODD FACT: I learned how to ride a bike this year and can’t get enough of these canyon trails!
MY STEEZ: My sequences are challenging, so the savasana is well-earned! Showing up is most of the battle. If we can get out of our own ways (read: just get onto the mat), all the tired-aching-traffic-not-enough-time-today talk will melt away. I’ve never left the mat regretful I've spent my hours there!
