I'm an actress, yoga teacher, blogger and full-time mama based in Los Angeles, CA. I've been practicing yoga since 1998, and started teaching at YogaWorks in 2001. I teach all levels of yoga, though I have a special love for beginners to early intermediate students as the willingness to slow down and practice patience can be so precious in this busy world.

I have a 3 year old daughter, Luciana, and my husband and I welcomed a little boy, Huck, in January of this year. Parenting is yoga in action 24 hours a day. Along with the indescribable love and joy I feel for my kids, there are the skills of staying present, navigating the uncomfortable or the unknown, being willing to get back up when I fail miserably, and showing up no matter what.
