My awareness of the subtle energetic body began soon after I took my first yoga class in 2006. Yoga plays a huge role in both my physical and spiritual health; and I feel it expresses the best parts of me. It also encouraged me to pursue this path of medicine, healing, and spiritual health. I practice and teach hatha, vinyasa, and yin yoga.

I enjoy incorporating elements of qigong and taichi into my teachings. Essentially, this means incorporating breathing exercises into the poses. We’ll learn to expand our lung capacity, our ability to extract “fresh lung qi” from the air; and then move this energy seamlessly through our bodies, releasing any areas of stagnation.

I strive to break the current connotation of yoga in today’s society – that all yoga is “hot yoga” or that one must be flexible to practice. There is less focus on accomplishing “difficult” poses, and more focus on cultivating internal awareness.
