“I’d rather have flowers in my hair than diamonds around my neck.”
Rooted in the sand of the San Diego beaches and raised under the California sunshine, I am nothing fancier than a free spirited beach bum. Putting on make up is worse to me than any chore, and wearing anything other than sandals is something I fervently avoid. In constant strive of personal growth, I opted to step (way) outside of my comfort zone for the duration of my college years… hello Fort Worth, Texas! Paradoxically enough, it was there where the deepest connection with my innate hippie nature blossomed into existence.
Yoga is my passion and a part of my daily life. I am a vegan (most of the time – hehe), reiki energy healer, student of Buddhism, Hinduism, Mysticism, people, and life, crystal enthusiast, lover of nature, believer in the power of the Universe, and zealous wanderluster.
This wanderlust spirit of mine led me to Bali, Indonesia, where I spent almost six weeks to become a certified yoga instructor. As much as I desperately wish I could re-create my experience in Bali for all of you via my words, it is truly ineffible. I was surrounded by incredible people and intensely powerful healers. I traveled deeper into my own spirituality than I ever had before, and as a result many shifts happened within me.
What I honor most as a yoga instructor is being a living example of Yoga. Live yoga; be light. My hope is that my words, encouragement, guidance, and instruction of asana will help my students recognize the light within themselves, and that WHO I am always remain my greatest teaching. May my own being encourage my students to shine the light of their highest self.
Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu!
