I fell in love with Yoga the first time I stepped onto a mat in 1993 and have been voraciously studying ever since. Passionate about Restorative Yoga and all of its benefits, I became certified in 2009 after completing my first Yoga Teacher Training at The Yoga Tree in San Francisco with Judith Hanson Lasater. One year later, I founded and operated Grass Valley Yoga Studio, and began to share my love of this beautiful practice. I successfully completed the Foundations of Svaroopa Yoga teacher training in 2012. I received my 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification through The Yoga Shack in Nipomo, CA. I relocated to the Central Coast in 2014 and I am grateful to have found the incredible community of Yoga Village which has welcomed me with open arms as the owner / director, since March 2016. I received my 500 hour Advanced Teaching Certification through Yoga Village in 2018 and I look forward to sharing my newfound knowledge with you!
