I’m a former gymnast originally from Santa Cruz, California. Though I’d have voted myself Least Likely To Be An Entrepreneur, I proudly opened U Studio Yoga in Los Angeles in 2006. I’m big on weaving philosophy into the asana and my recipe includes equal parts sweat and laughter too. Shape, NFL Network, Los Angeles Times, Huff Post and Self have featured me. Oh, and I’ve been called a Rock Star & One of LA’s Best Teachers. (I know…pretty obnoxious.) I love leading the most unassuming newbies to yoga and mindfulness and work with everyone from athletes to executives. I’m an ambassador for lululemon and contribute as a writer to Gaiam, Elephant Journal, Mantra Magazine, Origin and others. You can also find me presenting at yoga festivals like Wanderlust. Though my early childhood aspirations were to be a fairy princess, I’m pretty happy with the way things have turned out.
