GREATER SACRAMENTO

I added yoga into my life while working as a farrier in Colorado. One of my clients was yoga teacher. She taught me asanas to harmonize my mind and body for work underneath horses. Automobile and horse accidents impacted my knees, hips and spine. I traded farrier work for academics and white collar work. My yoga practice proved to be an effective alternative to epidural steroids. For the past decade I practiced deeply with yoga teachers in California, Nevada and Washington, DC who embody man

As a curvy woman, I’ve felt excluded from yoga in the past. I’ve spent the majority of my life ashamed and obsessed with my size. Teaching yoga is my favorite way to experience and share joy & knowledge, and my goal is to create spaces that are 100% inclusive, body-positive and affirming for every identity. Yoga isn’t just about what happens on the mat - it’s about what happens off the mat. If you leave my classes feeling mindful, empowered, rejuvenated, ready to take on the system and

I am here for you. I am here to make this world a better place by helping each of you strive to be a better, healthier human in the world. Fitness is my life. From coaching CrossFit to teaching Yoga, and nutrition in between. If I can do it.....so can you. All my classes are all levels, unless stated differently, which means that a beginner and an advanced student can be in the same class together and each will be challenged in their own way. I have always said that quality is so much better

I am a born and raised Texan who now calls South Korea home. Growing up, I always knew my calling was to be a teacher and help people.

Yoga has been my anchor in my adult life, giving me the tools to stay clear and steady on the roller coaster of life. It’s also encouraged me see the beauty in the smallest of things and celebrate life’s successes with great joy. My classes are always mindfully pla
