My formal study of yoga took place at Exhale Center for Sacred Movement in Venice, CA. – a world renowned spiritual center that laid the foundation for yoga’s rise in popularity in the western world.
In 2008, I entered into training and a two year apprenticeship with Saul David Raye – a pioneering and inspiring presence in yoga’s evolution in the west, and one of the founding members of Sacred Movement.
After finishing my studies and earning my RYT-200 certification through Yoga Alliance, I began teaching classes, facilitating wellness workshops, offering online educational programs, and leading retreats in both the U.S. and abroad.
I went on to complete intensives and certification programs with master teachers, studying meditation and ayurveda in southern India (2009), and traditional Thai yoga massage therapy in northern Thailand (2010).
For the last decade, I’ve had the honor of serving as an ambassador, event coordinator and fundraiser for Yoga Gives Back, a non-profit whose mission is to mobilize the global yoga community for the purpose of empowering women and girls in India to build sustainable livelihoods and communities.
