I began practicing in 1999. Yoga practice is the master teacher, so I’ve maintained my personal practice while studying with only two teachers: Bryan Kest and Rudy Mettia, though I continue to glean insights from many others. Bryan taught me a beautiful yogic perspective, experiential understanding, and to be grateful. Rudy taught me safe and effective alignment, immense creative freedom, and the greatest lesson of all: how to laugh at life and myself. I’m deeply indebted to each of these men. In addition to over 6,000 classroom hours teaching yoga, I hold a Doctorate Degree in Natural Health focused in Transpersonal Studies, and 2 undergraduate degrees in Psychology. I have been helping individuals achieve optimum physical and mental wellbeing for over 25 years. My classes are versatile, focused, and just like life off the mat: intense, laid-back, relaxed, no-holds barred, easy, hard, comfortable, confronting, and everything in between. Either way, you can always count on receiving everything I’ve got to give.
