My Teaching Style
Coming from a background of traditional hatha yoga, all of my classes are based in a deep connection to the breath with a focus on alignment and allowing space for each student to fully experience each posture from wherever they are. Through this simplicity I encourage students to explore their internal awareness and observation.

Each of our teachers take inspiration from their lineage of yoga and personal practise when designing their classes, so this is a little bit more about how I uniquely deliver each style of class:

Mellow Hum: Yin inspired, holding grounded poses with the support of props to help find a gentle yet deep release.
 
Unified Hum: Flow class based on a theme, with ample space to breathe into each posture, and a strong focus on alignment and helping you find the pose where you are today.
 
Dynamic Hum: Press up against your edges. Classes taught in a flow style, exploring the power in holding poses and keeping your breath steady. We’ll approach more advanced asana and incorporate pranayama techniques.

About me
I came to yoga instinctively, knowing, somehow, that I would like it. Those first moments of enjoyment later gave way to a deeper connection and a readiness to learn more. I continue to study through classical, lineage based practices so that I can expand that connection and clarity within myself. Along the way, my passion for learning grew into a passion for teaching. I aim to inspire the same spark and quest for knowledge in each of my students as I had when I first began practicing.
 
I love to sing, cherish alone time, and often spend quiet evenings at home or in the park nearest my apartment. I practice self care on the daily to keep myself from over-working. Summer is my favorite season because you can fully see the vibrant life buzzing around us in all directions.

Guilty Pleasure
Definitely a good Netflix binge

When I’m not teaching Yoga, you’ll find me......
Working on my podcast or taking a slow walk through the park.

Why we love yoga
It expands into our everyday life, slowing us down and giving us space to breathe and observe moment to moment.
