About Me

The focus is on your individual growth and exploration of the self during your practice on and off the mat. Our goal is to reach an overall sense of connection, peace, and internal happiness.

I started to study yoga when I moved to Saint Petersburg, Florida in 2002. Back then I didn’t know yoga would become my way of life. One day, my teacher told me, “Yoga will change your life forever!” and she was absolutely right. Yoga not only changed my life, it soon became so much more…To me, Yoga now is my lifestyle. I can’t image my being without it. It helped me not only trade my bad habits for good but to look out from under the veil to see all that the world has to offer. Through personal change, I became extremely passionate to share this knowledge with others. That’s when I decided to become a yoga teacher.

I later discovered Ashtanga Yoga while learning and teaching Vinyasa. It immediately captivated me. Through my years of practicing and teaching different methods of yoga, Ashtanga is where my heart remains. Ashtanga is intriguing in so many ways. It brings clarity to every state of your being: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. My own personal experiences on the mat have deeply humbling to the core of my being. A reminder that change is impermanence and adaptation is acceptance. And now my purpose is to share, teach and help my students grow on their journey with Ashtanga Yoga.


My teaching method comes from a consistent, daily Ashtanga practice. I encourage my students to explore the practice as they rediscover themselves in a new light.

In my classes I will guide you with verbal alignment and intuitive physical adjustments, which in turn allows you to develop greater self-awareness, empowerment and peace through your practice. By sharing my experience and passion of yoga, I am striving to enrich each students’ life during their journey of self-discovery.

“My recent travels to Mysore, India in December 2012 and again in December 2014 has been forever life changing. I continue to make this journey once a year to immerse in the practice of Ashtanga Yoga, so I can be a better teacher for my students.”

Studying Ashtanga at KPJAYI, in Mysore, India, has been an eye-opening experience both as a student and teacher. I have been truly humbled and I now know the depth of what it means to “practice yoga on and off the mat”.
