My experience with movement, alignment, and body awareness first originated through my ballet training. As a once committed dancer, I was introduced to yoga as a means to enhance my flexibility and rejuvenate my body. Starting from the age of 13 and throughout my teenage years, I spent multiple summers away at various ballet intensives. I found yoga to be a nourishing reset to the rigorous hours of training while studying at these competitive American companies. Back then, I appreciated the sole physical connection I had with yoga. Little did I know, this introduction would plant the first seeds of a growing relationship to the yoga practice.
Though my exposure to yoga took root earlier on, I’ve maintained a consistent practice over the past few years. Along this path, I have used yoga as a spiritual compass towards self-discovery, service to others, and a navigational tool through life’s inevitable challenges. Yoga has been a true friend and mentor in my personal growth, and has helped me to re-build a more compassionate relationship with myself and others. I come back to my mat time and time again because I feel the physical benefits, I sense more clarity and self-compassion, and I continue to align with my true authentic nature.
I am devoted to assist as many people as possible, and aim to provide others with accessible tools in exploring life’s many themes. I strive to be a living reflection of the world I wish to create, and seek to be an advocate for compassion, hope, and peace. I believe that relationships are at the heart of this human experience as a vital form of spiritual development. I am curious about the personal relations we form with the self, in addition to our everyday interactions. With this interest, I hope to introduce others to mindfulness for overall wellness and compassionate living. I've chosen this path in order to share, to learn, and to promote universal peace and love.
