As a Yoga guide, 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 something else, I know you’ll benefit from my practice.
Since 2013 I’ve regularly practiced yoga, and having the chance to share all that I’ve learned along the way with students through my practice fills me with joy. Something I know for sure is that everyone could use more yoga in their lives.
