Yoga, for me, is the pathway to attain deeper Self-awareness through practice, presence, and patience. My first yoga experience was 'reggae yoga' classes in 2008, and I continued exploring studio classes with Sivananda, Dharma Mittra, and Prana Flow influences. On an around-the-world trip, I settled at an ashram in India where I completed my 250-hour Yoga Teacher Training from Yoga Yida Gurukul. Since then, I've earned my 500-hour certification through Integrative Yoga Therapy. Working with special populations cemented my belief that yoga should encourage healthy, graceful aging for an abundant life. The sooner we can identify our habits, the sooner we can re-pattern for optimization. Both the challenge and the glory of the practice lies in its continuous rediscovery so that optimization is ever-evolving! I've taught from Nicaragua to Indonesia, and I'm grateful to now teach in Wilmington where Mother Ocean inspires me everyday. In my classes, I emphasize alignment, breath work, authenticity, and playfulness. Variations are offered to encourage practioners of all levels.
