I began practicing yoga about 12 years ago as a form of working out and as a means of supporting my dance practice. I was a competitive dancer for 12 years and danced overall for 18 years, and for me dance and movement has always been a means of self-expression beyond what I can convey with words.
I attended the University of Texas at Austin and during college I spent about 2 to 3 years practicing Bikram yoga. I then moved to Houston, TX after school where I mostly practiced vinyasa yoga. In 2016 I completed my RYT-200 yoga certification as a way to grow in my own practice and with the intention of being able to contribute to the community. One reason I love yoga is the experience I have of myself on my mat and knowing myself as loving and powerful, and my hope is to leave my students with the experience of knowing themselves in a new and empowering way.
In 2017 I hopped in the car with my dog and cat and drove from Houston to Seattle, and love it here so far. Off the mat I am a tax consultant and CPA and enjoy exploring this new city.
