My goal is to offer a safe and nurturing space for students of yoga to follow their own journey and pathway through yoga. I am passionate about making my classes accessible and inclusive to differently-abled bodies. I believe that every person, every body should have the opportunity to freely practice yoga and enjoy its benefits.
I have been teaching yoga for 15 years, and I am a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance as a E-RYT 500 (experienced registered yoga teacher) with over 1,000-hours of training and 4,000 hours of teaching experience. I am also hold the RCYT (registered children's yoga teacher) and RPYT (registered prenatal yoga teacher), YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider), and Accessible Yoga Teacher credentials.
I have a Masters Degree in Health Promotion Management and I inspire a yoga practice that fosters Serenity Within which provides accessible, inclusive, and affordable yoga classes, workshops, and trainings to the community.
I completed several trainings at schools that are registered with Yoga Alliance beginning with a 200-hour training in the Kundalini lineage with Darshan Kaur Khalsa. I furthered my studies with another 200-hour training with Doug Keller & Susan Van Nuys at Health Advantage Yoga Center, and a 300-hour Advanced training with Maryam Ovissi at Beloved Yoga. In addition, I completed Shakta Kaur Khalsa's Radiant Child Teacher Training and a prenatal teacher training. I have also studied with Jivana Heyman, Elise Browning, Baxter Bell, Tias Little, Elena Brower, Beryl Bender Birch, Nischala Joy Devi and Erich Shifmann.
