Teaching yoga is the most rewarding gift I’ve ever received. It allows me to make positive contributions to my community and to help students find peace and calm in this crazy world. I am traditionally non-traditional and I teach every class with the basic principles of Love, Compassion, Joy & Equanimity.I try to be the best teacher I can be and I bring a light and a levity to every class I teach. Employing an expression of devotion and tradition, I teach in a way that holistically inspires my students. I am committed to honoring all of my teachers who have led me to a life devoted to the practice and teaching yoga to others.

I stand in the light of my greatest potential and invite others into their own – that is where my teaching comes from.

The Practice

Yoga is not just being on a mat for 60 or 90 minutes at a time. Yoga is calming the fluctuations of the mind and it is a lifelong journey to find yourself. The practice is about being present and mindful firstly with yourself then, secondly, with the world. Take it one breath at a time regardless of where you are or what you are doing.

I teach a Vinyasa style of yoga and my goal is to only teach the asana but to teach the whole practice. This means that I want my students to take the metaphor of the physical practice off their mat and find ways to incorporate what they learn in class and apply those principles to their daily lives.

I’ve been so blessed to study with Sri Dharma Mittra who, I feel, is the living embodiment of yoga. He has dedicated almost his whole entire life to the practice of yoga and it is such a beautiful experience to learn from him. I’ve learned from Sri Dharma, my guru, that anyone can do yoga no matter what their physical condition – there is yoga for every single one of us and it isn’t always a pose.

Mini-Workshop: Eka Pada Koundinyasana
Here’s a 2 minute mini workshop video that I did for Wanderlust at Squaw Valley 2014.  It’s a few tips on how to do a fun arm balance.

I love the cyclical nature of the asana practice. Every time you finish, you’re right back at the beginning, ready for another journey, another adventure on your mat.

I try to find inspiration in something each day. Sometimes I read or hear or see something that really resonates with me and it becomes a part of me. Here are a few things from the very long list.

“Yogas citta vritti nirodhah” 

Patanjali's Yoga Sutras Chapter 1, v2.

Translated to English this quote means “Yoga is the calming of the fluctuations of the mind.” This sutra is the essence of yoga, meaning that if one practices yoga then the mind will calm which will bring balance. This is especially important for everyday life given the stresses that we encounter so often – just do a little yoga and it will all be ok. Yoga helps us chip away at all the stuff in our minds that gets the way so that our thinking will become clear and peace can be found.
The first two yamas: Ahimsa (Non Harming) and Satya (Truth) are the first two and most important “codes of conduct” in yoga. Ahimsa toward everything including ourselves and Satya in speech as well as action. These two yamas will bring us closer to the ultimate goal of yoga which is Samadhi (enlightenment).
I highly recommend any book translated, commented on or written by Edwin T. Bryant is a treasure. He is a professor of Hinduism at Rutgers University and is one of the most engaging people I have ever met. He makes everything so easy to understand and as soon as you read his work, the light bulbs start going off like crazy!

The Four Immeasurables: Love (Maitri), Compassion (Karuna), Joy (Mudita), Equanimity (Upeksa) – four principles to apply to every action and every thought in every day.

  • Come to the edge, he said. They said, We are afraid. Come to the edge, he said. They came. He pushed them and they flew.

    Guillaume Apollinaire
  • The birds have vanished into the sky…And the last cloud drains away…We sit together, the mountain and me… Until only the mountain remains.

    Li Po
  • He looked at his own Soul with a Telescope. What seemed all irregular, he saw and showed to be beautiful constellations: and he added to the consciousness worlds within worlds.

    Samuel Taylor Coleridge
