I am currently licensed to teach Zumba, Zumba® Toning, Zumba Sentao®. Come join me, I guarantee you will have a blast! Got questions, don't hesitate to drop me a message!
I stumbled into my first yoga studio 12 years ago. I literally mean 'stumbled’ because after many years of pushing my body to do things that didn’t support it, I could no longer walk or run comfortably. Yoga was a last resort. Yoga changed everything. It gave me instant community. It inspired me to start traveling. And most importantly, it shifted my relationship with my body.
Since my first yoga teacher training in 2010, I've completed an additional 300 hour training with Anahata Soul (a Phoenix based school of yoga that focuses on meditation and emphasizes the subtle, energetic body) and have also earned certifications on the Spine, Myofascia Release, Yoga Anatomy and Chinese Medicine with Yoga Medicine. My classes combine the fluidity of breath and movement experienced in vinyasa yoga with my love for anatomy and safe alignment.
