Why Yoga?
At this point, I truly can’t imagine my life without it. Yoga came into my life as a form of physical exercise, nothing more than a good sweat with the added benefit of gaining flexibility. Slowly, its teachings and way of life crept its way into my world and changed everything. Yoga has, and continues to, pull me out my lowest times, remind me of my own strength, deeply connect me to my body, and challenge me to grow in all areas of my life. My mat has become my safe space, a place I return to day after day to play, process and grow - physically, mentally and spiritually.


Who or what inspires you?
The women I’m currently surrounded with! I’m constantly in awe of, and inspired by, the connection of the tribe I’m surrounded by. Uplifting and supporting one another in a way I never dreamed of. Living and moving from the HEART.

 

Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style…
Connected. playful. passionate.

 

Where are you the most fearlessly authentic in your life?
Is it silly if I say that right now it’s on my mat? On my mat I don’t play small. I’m not fearful of being judged. I explore what’s possible, play and experience. I take rest when I need it and I’m not afraid to cry. On my mat I show up exactly how I am in that moment. Yeah, on my mat - and that’s okay, I know it creeps into all other areas of my life.

 

What is something not a lot of people know about you?
I moved A LOT growing up. Every two years or so. I’ve lived all over the US, in Switzerland and in Australia. One day I’ll make it back to Australia!

I started taking yoga classes when I lived in San Francisco during college. From the moment I left my first class, I knew that there was something that undoubtedly set yoga apart from any other activity I had tried. There was an instant connection and draw to keep practicing. Not long after that first class, becoming a yoga teacher became my absolute dream. I continued to practice through the years at various studios, and finally landed at Just Be, where I found my home. I completed the teacher training in Fall 2016 and shortly thereafter completed a mentorship with Malia Hill.

 

Why yoga?
Yoga allows me to feel at home in my body and allows me to appreciate who I innately am. Yoga allows me to live in love, rather than in fear. Yoga keeps me aligned with my passion, with myself, and with my path.

 

Who or what inspires you?
My teachers inspire me for many reasons, but most prominently for their ability to so powerfully share parts of themselves every time they teach a class.

 

Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style:
Tenacious. Compassionate. Honest.

 

Where are you the most fearlessly authentic in your life?
I am most fearlessly authentic in my career and in starting my own healing business. I now wake up and love what I do for a living.

 


What is something not a lot of people know about you?
Surfing comes in at a close second to yoga on my list of favorite hobbies. I love the ocean and am convinced I was a dolphin or mermaid in a past life.
