Yoga brings me to life. Life takes me back to yoga.

My journey began with an undeniable call to teach yoga. I left a business gig in Chicago and told myself that if it didn’t work out, I could always go back to the desk if I needed. I come from humble roots, so I felt I had nothing to lose—that was six years ago.

I moved to Seattle without knowing this city or knowing a soul. The stars aligned in my favor, as they do when you follow your heart, and I began teaching at a handful of brand new studios that all began to flourish, defining a new wave of athletic, musical yoga in Seattle.

My yoga style evolved and blossomed, and it still shifts and changes daily.

I call what I teach “creative and intelligent vinyasa flow.” For short, I’ve settled on: “spirit flow.” It is a unique and powerful class that combines rhythmic, dancey breath-led movement with structured anatomical opening for a peak posture.

My fluid yet pragmatic style is challenging, inspiring and enrapturing. I am fiercely dedicated to intuitive and flowing movement, and I delight in the challenge to choreograph beautiful, intelligent transitions. 

Ultimately, though, I am an entrepreneur at heart. I love to challenge conformity and envision new possibilities. I created the barre method for and the vision behind Bohemian Studios, and I built and lead The Craft of Teaching Yoga training programs. I also initiate local and international retreats, and I spearhead special events and collaborations. 

Yoga is the underscore of everything in my life, and because of that, I cannot help but share it with anyone who crosses my path.
