I began practicing yoga in 1994, and have taught for over fifteen years. I studied several traditions of yoga including Ashtanga and Iyengar, and as a result my classes give careful attention to postural alignment combined with the fluidity of body and breath. I offer a challenging yet compassionate approach that encourages students to move through the landscape of postures into a space of stillness and ease.
As a Doula, I work to inspire and empower mothers throughout their pregnancy, and during labor. My passion extends into my work with my non-profit project 'SoulShine Colombia', which is devoted to bringing Yoga and Meditation to impoverished and underprivileged women, mothers, and children around Colombia. The project specifically aims to empower individuals to tap into their inner strength, brilliance and joy through yoga, meditation, and mindfulness, and assist in breaking the cycle of poverty amongst women.
I live in Venice, CA with my two children where I teach at YogaWorks, work privately with clients, and travel periodically teaching workshops, retreats, and teacher trainings locally and internationally in both English and Spanish.
