Yoga is food for the soul, and medicine for the body. As with food, we each have our own yogic taste preferences. And, as with medicine, a particular yogic remedy and dose will be unique to each person and each moment. As your yoga hostess my goal is to help you find the most delicious and nourishing asanas to fuel you. I will encourage you to listen to the unique needs of your own body and to be courageous enough to take care of yourself.
I love to share my passion for yoga. I started dancing when I was 3 years old, and since then have learned various styles of dance including tap, jazz, ballet, hip-hop, modern, belly dance, cumbia, salsa, bachata, pole dance, and dance therapy. I was introduced to yoga by a dance instructor 6 years ago and vowed to keep yoga in my life forever. Yoga has so much to offer for the body, mind, and soul. Nothing would please me more than to share my passion for yoga with you.
My journey with yoga began more than a decade ago and it has remained the one constant in my life which has otherwise been filled with movement and change. Power Vinyasa inspires me because the practice is challenging for both mind and body. Teaching yoga has been a rewarding experience for me, and I hope to share the love and compassion of the practice with you soon!
I have noticed the stressful effects of a busy modern lifestyle and have found that taking plenty of time to slow down is the best antidote. My intention is to bring more softness, sweetness and ease into the experience of doing yoga and to create a safe and comforting space where everyone can relax into their bodies knowing that everything is going to be alright. My exploration of the healing arts has caused me to gravitate towards a gentler, restorative, yin style approach to vinyasa yoga. I offer a "free flow" yoga practice set to music where students can explore the movement of their bodies and breath within an asana sequence
I initially sought out yoga as a balance to my strength-based fitness routines & stress-filled life.I have taught throughout the Bellingham and Seattle areas for over 14 years - from toddlers to seniors. My style is grounded in form, flow, and fun. The form is my foundation - Iyengar Style, focused on building self-awareness of healthy alignment and breath in each posture. I welcome all skill levels, all body types and all life experience. My class is fun, nurturing, and challenging and meets people where they are in the moment with whatever they bring to class each day.
