My yogic path has taken several twists, turns, inversions, and even an extended break over the last 9 years, but it has been almost three years since I really began to dedicate my time, energy, and focus to the practices. My husband and son can attest to my love of the practice, and with great understanding, have supported me through my journey. I received my 200 hour certification in the Raja yoga tradition at Yoga Community in Sonoma, and have been lucky enough to practice and learn with amazing teachers in the Napa Valley and San Francisco. . Through yoga, I feel a sense of empowerment and strength of mind, body, and spirit, and through motherhood, I've regained my understanding of the importance of leaving room for a bit of play! My hope is to help students find their own inner and outer strength, as well as experience the deep sense of community that yoga can bring.
