Inspired by nature with a heart set on fire

As a trusted group instructor based in the bay area, my main goal is to lead others down the long path of discovery that yoga provides. Whether you want to move your body, reach spiritual growth, or be more present, I know you’ll benefit from my practice. Since 2015 I’ve regularly practiced yoga, and having the chance to share all that I’ve learned along the way with students fills me with joy. Something I know for sure is that everyone could use more yoga in their lives. Here's a little more about my story...

My Story

Ever since I could remember my family referred to me as the wildflower. 

I was always exploring and active as a child. It was in my nature to push boundaries and find the limits to my physical strength. This brought me to love soccer, dancing, running, hiking, climbing, and camping. In combination with this firey free spirit, nature was always where I felt free. If you follow me on Instagram you'll see yoga and nature if where you will always find me.

For as long as I can remember I  often ran through forest trails, always asking my family when the next camping adventure would be. I always struggled being in traditional schooling. My body struggle to process the world around me being on the spectrum and had ADHD excess energy that even had therapists shocked. After 10 years of battling and experiencing the miracles of healing from my many stories of resilience in fitness and life, I want to share the joy that comes from conquering failures, injuries, and the unknown. Healing and embracing the unknown only came from learning the natural consequences of impulsive behavior and missing connection. I understand from experience the darkness of PTSD, shadow-work, addiction, and pain. Each of these experiences becomes imprinted in our bodies. Yoga was what brought me this peace and relief for the first time 10 years ago. As my journey continues I embrace the messiness of being human while putting to practice compassionate recovery towards myself, my students, and the rest of you beautiful humans.  

This bay area girl was never meant to lead a "normal" life. Inspired by the diversity that surrounds me in the city and the abundance of nature within a day's drive away. My primal personality formed by nature and nurture is a gift. I am a wild, free-spirited soulful woman who cares deeply about the world around me. I am supercharged with energy, compassion, and healing. 

Growth is never easy but with a positive attitude, hard work, dedication, and confidence I know anything is possible. I'm here to walk that path with you in support and compassion.

 

My mission is to share my education and life experience through yoga and art. I hope to inspire you to create a sacred space for yourself wherever that may be and enjoy a piece of art, transform with yoga, heal and find a moment of peace. Because the moment I stopped over-identifying with my "brokenness" and retired my fear-based tools for survival. I found new pathways to become my best self. 

If you feel this pulling at your heartstrings or your inner child pushing you to play I invite you to take off those shoes, run through the grass, and move with joy. Ground yourself, then please join me in soul work through movement and stillness. 

NAMASTE,
