Hello and welcome, yogis and future yogis,
Yoga has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was born and raised on the island of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, and have have memories of attending a yoga class with my mom as a toddler, and learned yoga as a child from an amazing physical education teacher at the Good Hope School. My father turned to yoga for chronic back problems, and I witnessed the practice change his life, as he cultivated a daily home yoga practice. Yoga is huge part of my family life, and I’ve developed a strong personal relationship with the philosophy and beliefs of yoga.
I have an extensive background in ballet and modern dance, and In 2009, I returned to my personal yoga practice with a renewed sense of vigor and dedication. I practiced in St. Croix at The Kalima Center, and in Los Angeles at Yoga Vibe and One Down Dog. In January 2018 I began my 200 hour teacher training at One Down Dog, graduating in June 2018. I also completed a prenatal yoga immersion workshop with Kim Ritley at One Down Dog in June 2018.
I’m trained to teach vinyasa flow style yoga, and I’ve explored a wide variety of types of yoga in my practice, including Ashtanga and Kundalini. I have a personal interest in pranayama (breath) and mantra (chanting), and my personal home practice is based in Kundalini yoga, mantra, meditation and breath.
I’m currently teaching practice classes in the Los Angeles area, so please contact me if you are interested in a donation-based private session or group class.
