After being diagnosed with Scoliosis and giving up my favorite sports, I was finally coaxed into yoga by my beautiful mom. (Her name's Jody and you'll hear a lot about her on my site.) I began teaching right after I graduated college, earning 500 hours of teacher training certification in the summer of 2012. In my regular yoga classes I focus on powerful flows mixed with traditional balancing poses. Students can expect a repetition of challenging calisthenics, inversions, breath work, core exercises, and deep juicy stretches. With an emphasis on transitions, movements are slow, fluid, and controlled to help establish body listening skills and mindfulness.In addition to public yoga classes, I teach corporate classes, private classes, private groups, and yoga socials and events. Feel free to contact me if you're interested in collaborating.
As much as I love the movement part of yoga, I believe it's meant to go beyond that. As a teacher, I feel that it's my duty to not only use yoga to help people physically, but to use it as a tool to bring people together. Especially while I'm guiding a wellness retreat, I try to integrate yoga and karma yoga into communities that have less exposure to it. I use yoga to give back to my local community through my passion project, Rise and SoulShine; a Miami based event for yogis, vendors, and philanthropists, with proceeds supporting local non-profits every month.
