After graduating from the University of Colorado, I spent ten years in the corporate world, not enjoying it much and doing a ton of yoga to compensate. After having two babies in two years, my husband and I were trying to adjust to life with small children and took a formal course in transcendental meditation. Within a week, I started noticing REAL changes in my life...I was less agitated in traffic, I wanted to play with my kids more and I felt truly connected to other people in ways I never had before. I was intrigued to say the least and have spent the last few years practicing, reading and listening to everything I can get my hands on about meditation and mindfulness practice. I made a decision not to go back to my cubicle and instead pursue a career where I could practice doing what I love - teaching yoga & meditation.
I have been practicing yoga, meditation and pranayama for 13 years and obtained my 200hr RYT from Prana Yoga Center under the mentorship of Gerhard Gessner. I am registered with Yoga Alliance E-RYT 200. I am also certified to teach both meditation and pranayama. I currently teach yoga & meditation at San Diego State University, for the County and City of San Diego and at studios around San Diego.
I am inspired by Sharon Salzberg, Tara Brach, Eckhart Tolle, Jason Crandell, my kids and my students.
