In 2011, I completed my 200-hour training in Vinyasa Yoga through Frog Lotus Yoga. Since then, I have spent most of the last seven years traveling, sharing yoga from retreats in Guatemala to hostels in Mexico to villas in Croatia. Between trips, I also conducted Power Yoga classes at universities and specific yoga courses on trauma for homeless teenagers in Colorado. Teaching all over the world and to so many different demographics has shown me that yoga is available to everyone and everyone. And that’s what I love so much. No matter where you are, yoga will meet you exactly where you are. As a person with a background in theatre, dance and gymnastics, I was captivated by the idea that there is no performance element in yoga. There is no “perfect” pose. You just have to learn to listen to your body. Learn to accept and love it, as it is. And learn to understand the ways in which you can compassionately encourage your body to grow. I love Vinyasa Yoga because it helps me discover ease and joy as it flows through challenging postures. I love Yin Yoga because it teaches me to relax around my tensions, to free myself, to release, to continue to breathe and to allow my body to open even when I really want to stop. I love Acro Yoga because it shows me a playful, confident and adventurous side of myself that I never want to lose. During all my lessons, regardless of style, I hope to create a safe space. A space where people feel supported in unconditionally accepting themselves as they are, then exploring their own margins with curiosity and compassion and finding growth.
